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.
