Aw, so darn cute!

I’m gonna have to get me some of that KP Shine stuff!

That would look sooo cute on Phia! Thanks for posting the pattern :inlove:

I am guessing that this is for a kid age 2 or three right?

I would think so, Sandy… I made it for a 2-yr old with recently departed hair… :heart:

Your last post just made me say awwwwwww
Just want to give her a big hug!

That is so cute! Thanks for the pattern!

Thanks for the pattern! It reminds me of a daffodil!

OOH, Jan! It would be TOTALLY cute with a white ruffle and yellow middle!

it looks sorta like the flapper hat too! you could do an eyelet row a little ways up the hat and thread a ribbon through it. good way to resize the hat too if it is still just a little bit big for the head it is going on.

wouldn’t do that though if it is being used as a chemo cap though…ribbon would be too itchy.

Kelly, how long of a circ needle did you start it off with? At what point is it necessary to switch to the DPNs? Or did you do 2 circs?

Brendajos, I think I saw this sort of hat with the ribbon like you were describing somewhere on the free patterns page right here on KH. Can’t remember who designed it, but I’d say great minds must think alike. :slight_smile:

it is a lion brand pattern…it is called the flapper hat. super easy but keeping all those stitches on the needle to begin with is a bit of a pain! :shock:

here’s the one i did for my hat contest.

i must say that i LOVE how ruffly it is on the littler hat though. i may have to get out my hat makin’ stuff again if i ever finish this blasted project i am working on now! :wink:

I had to start off with a 24" circ…then moved to a 16" after all the k2togs… the DPN, well, that depends on when YOU become uncomfortable.

Kelly, did you use Shine Worsted or Shine Sport? :?:

I love both the hats they are both great. I really like the colours and the wool! :thumbsup: :heart:

It’s beautiful ! Can I use http://www.divaknitting.com/store/index.php?main_page=product_info&cPath=3&products_id=123 to make this hat?

:smiley: Great hats! Thanks for sharing :smiley:
