I couldn't control myself. I saw this kitty hat and I HAD to make it for my daughter. This is her second year with this hat and I'm afraid she's not willing to retire it for something a little bigger. Aww...doesn't she just look absolutely adorable? Yeah, she's really pushing that smile.
I tried actually making it a little bigger, but it just didn't turn out like that. I used Encore worsted weight to knit it up, so it had a nice soft feel to it and would keep out some of the cold. But, I could wash it too when it got dirty (and believe me, when knitting for a child...or husband...everything they wear tends to get dirty really fast).
