My dear friend asked for a hat for her daughter (whose first birthday is in two days). She picked the colors and it promised to be adorable.
As I was working up the hat pattern, it looked a bit small, so I followed the instructions for the next size up... still looked small... one more increase couldn't hurt.... right?? Yeah. The hat now fits my 2 year old. While the hat is adorable (and I love how the yarn pooled on it), it will be much to big for little Clara.
I finished the hat for my daughter, Ava. She makes a good model! Now, I'm working on another for Clara repeating the mantra:
Always trust the pattern.... always trust the pattern.... always trust the pattern.... :o)
