So, this is the first hat I've made for little Aviva. I didn 't have the right yarn and didn't feel like running out to get more, so my experiment was to double up two strands of DK weight yarn. And I did. :) Next time, I will definitely do it the right way and not be lazy, but it turned out all right either way.
A red foxes ears should be sticking up a little more, so she looks more like Eevie, the Pokemon. Which is fine. ;) So my next fox hat will have the ears up higher!
I made the hat in the 1-5 years size, not the 6 month size, so that it will fit her large ever expanding head longer (though at this point I'm going to make another one.) So what have I learned? Don't be lazy, go buy more yarn. ;)
Both Stephanie and I are posting our stitching progress weekly, so hopefully I'll have some new torturous creation to put on my little poppet's head.
