I finished my first knitting project ever Grin

I followed a great pattern called Capucine.
The yarn I used for the hat is Bernat Mosaic. I like how this project used just enough yarn to go through every colour of the rainbow, without repeating. For the tassels, I used several colours of yarn, each with a different texture.






It looks a little small on me, but that's because it's for a pre-teen.
All in all, I'm quite happy with it!

C & C appreciated, and here's a last picture of me being silly.

It really is a great beginner pattern because it includes many knitting basics: casting on, ribbing, garter stitch, in-the-round, decreasing... and it's really pretty Wink

I love how the striping sequence worked out (not repeating any of the rainbow colors). I agree with Stellaheartocean: LOVE the tassels!

Nice job.  The rainbow colors are really fun.

I have a Capucine hat on my needles right now.  Hope it turns out as nice as yours did.
