I just made this for my 7 yr old daughter using Rowan Big Wool. LOVED the pattern!! Very clearly written and easy to follow with beautiful results. I made the M/L size which was slightly large for my daughter's head but you can tighten the ribbon a little for better fit so she can wear it for a longer time. It just took me a couple of hours and I am not a fast knitter. Highly recommend this line of patterns, I am going to knit Fantine for myself next.
