I knew I would find this thread
Just an idea, I will try and post a pick tomorrow.
I did a hat for my daughter, it was a k2,p2 rib on circular.
Instead of decreasing the top and adding the usual pom pom on top.
She wanted it closed straight along the top edge. So the hat looks like a square. (I have seen the kids wearing these lately).
But the funny thing was, the corners of it with the ribbing, poked right up like a perfect pair of cat ears.
I saw it and was like aha (one of those moments).
Here's the pattern I used, it would fit anywhere from a 5year old to adult.
The ribbing is really stretchy.
5mm needles (I used 12"circ, I think a 16 would be okay too)
I used bernat ( I think it was something like light and lofty??No label on it)
It was that soft stuff that has the white and (mine was blue) intertwined to give it a tweedy look. (reminds me of sock monkeys).
C.O 80 sts
Knit in around of K2.P2 for about 8"
Lay flat and seam the top straight across.
I have never written a pattern so if it doesn't make sense just holler..
Pic to follow tomorrow.
