This little hat has a story: I was making the pumpkin hat (see post a couple below this) for my grand daughter. I wanted to try it on a child about her age to see if it fit. Light bulb moment, The little girl next door "Marisa who is 2" she would make a perfect tester. Well the hat fit her so it was all good. Then she looked up at me and said thank you. OPPS Now I had another hat to make. I carefully told her I had made that hat for my Grand daughter but would she like one like it or something else? She said Hello Kitty. So here is her hat and her beautiful little face!!! I need to add that I found this pattern online at this blog: http://beadwhore.blogspot.com/2007/10/hello-kitty-hat.html Beadwhore Knitting is the name of the blog. She is quite interesting!
