My very first "Me" designed knit hat
I have finished my first ever my design piece of knitting. I have done my own design crocheting before, but never was brave enough for the knitting patterns. I made this for my great Nephew, Nathen Ryan, because the day he was born (Sept. 24th the day after my birthday) he looked like a little elf to me. Some of the things I included:
The hat will fit him until he is about 5 years old, that was not an easy task, lots of ribbing hidden in the hat.
The "pompom" is actually crocheted, and is hollow with a jingle bell inside.

It's a wonderful design and in a great color. Your first knit design is a great success, and warm and cozy too.

Awesome!

I wonder, does the jingle bell makes a little bit of noise when you walk? That would be awesome :D Or do you need to shake your head exessively to make it "ring"?
