So my friends have been requesting that I knit them hats...well, I didn't know how to so I decided I need to learn! This is my first attempt & I was surprised by how easy & quick it was! It's not perfect, but I think I did alright for my first try!




Thanks for looking! Any feedback is appreciated Smiley

Cuteness! I love it. My only suggestion would be to use a smaller needle because the stitches seem kinda huge for that weight of yarn, at least to me. Other than that,  I think it's great. Smiley

Thank you! Yeah, the pattern called for a 10.5, which I didn't have, so I used an 11...but next time I think I'll go with chunkier yarn Smiley

very lovely, great first try Smiley

Thanks!

It looks super cute on you!
The white yarn makes your skin glow, and goes well with your dark hair and blue eyes
