A Purr-fectly warm hat

My niece Emma loves being a kitty.

I whipped up this hat from http://www.kittyville.com last week just before we headed up to the mountains for a week of fun in the snow.

Yarn: Debbie Bliss Merino Aran
100% merino wool
color 325606

Needle: US size 7

Notes:

– hat  measures approx. 20 inches at base (above the ear flaps)

– worked stockinette stitch for 2.75″ instead of 3.75″

– used provisional cast-on and knitted flaps after working top.

– next time will try starting from flaps first so that hat edge won’t be so noticeable

– once top and flaps were done, picked up stitches along  flap edges and then casting off these stitches along with provisional stitches to make a  finished edge.
