The pattern calls for four rows of stockinette at the bottom which, of course, immediately ROLLS! So, I unraveled and started with four rows of the broken rib K1P1 and it stays perfectly flat. Other than than, a very nice little number.
I loved the hat. I used Spud & Chloe yard as suggested in the pattern. My only issue was the hat turned out much larger than expected even after checking my gauge. I made another and reduced the needle size and made the smallest size and it fit my 6 year old granddaughter perfectly.
This pattern is so easy and fast to whip up. Everyone, including guys, get a twinkle in their eyes when they see it. I can hardly wait for the little guys I knit them for to see and wear them at Christmas. Beginners through advanced knitters will enjoy this pattern.
