Kitty hat

Oh my goodness, I actually finished something! (Please do note the festive cabbage modeling the hat. I found a double use for part of our St. Patrick's Day dinner.)

This little pink kitty hat is based on the Kittyville hat from Stitch N' Bitch. I sized down the original pattern, from adult to toddler, and left off the ear flaps. I don't remember the name of the yarn, off hand, but it's super soft and has tiny yellow and blue flecks spattered in the pink—very spring.

This hat is, of course, for my adorable little niece, who's been busy growing since we saw her last summer. I do hope that it fits her. She long ago outgrew the sweater and tam that I made for her. Although I had fun taking pictures of my cabbage wearing the hat, I do believe it will look much cuter on little Katie.

(Thanks to Tim for the great picture of Katie!)

She's so cute! The hat will look cute on her, there's no way it won't.

I love that lavender color with the little specks of blue. It's the perfect shade for a little girl....or a head of cabbage!

Excellent use of produce! And yes, she'll be cute as a bug in it!
