Rhonda sent me the pictures of Rowan in the kitty cat hat I made for her. She looks absolutely purrrfect in it! I'm planning on making another in a bit heavier yarn because the baby yarn is a little thin for this cold weather we've been having lately. I'd like to make one for my neice too, I'm sure she'd look like a doll in it. :-)
This pattern is from an old Patons Beehive Book, Issue 420.
(I've acquired quite a few of these little books over the last year.) Kitten Bonnet & Mitts called for Canadiana Fingering 4 ply or Patons Fuzzy Wuzzy. I would love to get my hands on some Fuzzy Wuzzy, too bad it's no longer available, I check on their site. The picture they show was done with it and it looks so cute. I just used some 4 ply baby yarn that I had in the old stash. It also used 3.25mm needle but I used a 3.5mm just because I was itching to try out my new knit picks needles that I got for Christmas. After wearing the hat on her for over a week now, it's gotten quite loose so when I do this hat again I will use the smaller needles. :-)

If her head keeps getting bigger, she'll grow into it... Mom made me a kitty cat hat when I was four and I wore it until I was 12... thank god for stretching

I made this hat 14 years ago using angora yarn. I made the mitts too. Loved making it.
