My niece Emma loves being a kitty.
Yarn: Debbie Bliss Merino Aran
100% merino wool
Needle: US size 7
– 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.
