I'm just finishing up the Kitty Hat Pattern. It is a fairly easy pattern, so goes pretty quickly, and I do like how it's turned out. The only thing I didn't like about it was that it has to be sewn up the back, so the next one I make, I think I'll do in the round on my circular needles.
I don't know how many Knitting Pure & Simple patterns I have but I LOVE THEM. They're always a very easy pattern to follow and you can knit plain or add your own special one of a kind touches. The had with ear flaps was very easy to knit and I finished it in less than a day - only thing I did different was to knit I-cord ties on it instead of a twisted yarn one. The hat I knit is perfect for little ones because it is lower in the back to cover a bit of the neck area, the flaps cover the ears so it's also perfect to wear under a hooded winter coat (babies do wiggle around :-). I would recommend any of these patterns to anyone - even an experienced knitter. Always a fun, quick and super easy knit!
