I think the hat is beautiful and your cousin is a stinker for treating you like she has.

Your work is beautiful. Just consider the source and never do anything for this person again. Please, just let it slip by you. There are some who don't warrant being upset over. Keep knitting and give only to those who will sincerely appreciate your work.

I love the hat! Great design. I have downloaded the pattern, and will be making it for some of my DGC's. I think using knitting worsted weight yarn and size 8 needles, that it will fit a child up to age 10 (or older)!

Thanks so much for the positive feedback!

You're absolutely right .... I bet that using worsted weight yarn with larger needles would easily increase the size for an older child!

Good Luck!

There used to be an expression, "Blow it out your barracks bag!" Seems to fit for someone ungrateful.

Love the color and the pattern, thanks for sharing the pattern with us.

Thanks for all the positive feedback you guys!

DH says that everything I make is "very nice", but it's nice to know that other knitters who are a little bit more objective also think that a pattern I've created looks ok!

That just simply needed to be repeated.
I'm familiar with a slightly different version of this expression that will also fit.
OMG! THIS is the hat you knit for that ungrateful *%#@ ?
(pardon my language)

I tried really hard to find the "wrong" stitch and I couldn't, before I started reading the replies. And I have a very critical eye.
I didn't even associate this post with your post in the lounge.
