Super cute pattern! This was my first "real" knitting project, and the first time I'd knitted since high school. Suddenly, I can knit! I made the hat with a merino worsted for the blue, and alpaca for the brown. It turned out great and my little man loves it (wore it to bed the day I finished it). n nThe pattern was easy to follow. It says it will stretch to fit a 19" head, which concerned me at first since my little guy has a big head. However, Jesska encourages you to make a sample swatch before knitting and I'd recommend that. I used size 6 needles and ended up with a hat measuring 20" at the brim, stretching to 22 inches. She knits tight, I knit loose, I guess! That or I used a thicker yarn...did I mention I was a knitting nube? n nAnyways I was very happy with my purchase.
