This little hat is ready to be gifted.  This was my first time knitting a Tot Toppers pattern.  It was well written and I had to only make a couple minor changes – reducing the length of the hat and the number of rounds to finish off the crown.  This was probably due to the fact that I didn’t check gauge before casting on (as always, my bad!)  

Also, this was my first time using this yarn and I absolutely loved knitting with it.  It’s so soft, has a lovely sheen to it and the price is unbeatable.  Added bonus — it’s machine washable!  I managed to knit this hat out of just one ball with maybe a yard to spare.

Love the little details in this pattern – the lacy brim, the sweet rosettes and the little ‘teepee’ (don’t know what else to call that pointy bit).  It’s a little too big on my 2-year-old’s noggin, but I think that it will be perfect for the recipient who is 3.

    The first photo is awesome. I love the look on Kiki’s face. She is a doll! Oh, the cat is cute too. Sorry, didn’t notice the hat with all the Kiki cuteness around.
