What a fun knit project to make in an evening or two. The top is attached in a way that makes it removable for washing. The array of animals and other toppings are so cute - everyone is loving them ! There are other kits that will be available soon. The kit contains enough yarn to make an adult small or toddler hat, ribbon for attaching top, and a circle of foam to help top stay firm. Pattern is conveniently on the ball band.
