So yesterday, I tried again, this time following the directions for the 9-12 months size. I finished the hat and had him try it on before going to the work of adding the face — he absolutely LOVED it .. he laughed and laughed and played with the braids. When I asked him if he wanted it plain or with the face, he chose the face. So last night I whipped up the ears, etc and this morning I put it all together.
I’m quite pleased with the results, especially since the hat part took me only a few hours, as opposed to the days it takes for an afghan. And it looks like a hat…. and it fits! … and he likes it. So you can’t ask for more than that.
Yarn: (main hat) RedHeart “Aran Fleck” worsted weight. (The 260 yards made 2 hats with a fair bit left over.)
(Note: the pink in the photo is just a water bottle that the hat is sitting on)
