King Pig Hat
A while ago a friend asked me if I could make a this hat for her friends little girl. The problem being that the little girl is about 6 months old and the hat pattern is for an adult. So I decided to start with this kids beanie pattern and go from there.
The eyes and ears were easy to scale down but the nose and crown were a little bit more confusiing. I must admit when I first got to that part I left the poor hat sitting for a couple of weeks before I decided to just jump in and tackle it. The crown took me a few attempts and i'm not 100% happy with it but it'll do. I simply used the crown pattern from the original pattern but cast on less stitches. Unfortunately, I didn't take notes so I can't remember exactly what I cast on. Sorry! For the nose I just did less rounds before starting to work the even rounds to make it a bit smaller.
I sent a pic to my friend and she was pretty happy with it. I will be giving it to her today at work and I am just crossing my fingers that it will fit her friends little girl. If anything it might be a little big but that is ok because she can always grow into it.
