I have seen the pig tail hat pattern from MagKnits, but it's for a nearly adult size hat, and the hat I knit is for my 10 month old niece. So I didn't bother with the magknits pattern at all.
What I decided to do was make a hat which I knew would fit her perfect, slap it on her head and kinds figure out where the pig tail holes should go based on her hair and such. Then I came home and made an identical hat, but with the holes for pigtails. I just winged it. Looking back I could have saved myself a bunch of grief has I just 'shrunk' the Mag Knits pattern... but oh well!
I am now pounding out the specifics of a hat with one pigtail hole for my nearly 12 year old daughter... she has so much hair that I'm going to have to make the pigtail hole HUGE! I'll post a pic of it when I get that one done... hopefull by the end of today! :XX: :XX: :XX:
Thanks for the encouragement!!
