I just discovered your knitting blog! I love it. I am going to have fun watching it. I made that butterfly hat too! But I just made it into a headband instead of a hat. I made a bunch that I was going to sell but never did...Hmmm. I forgot about that.
what beautiful hats! my boyfriend has twin 8 year old nieces that these would be PERFECT for. how many stitches did you cast on to accomodate for the 7 year old size? thanks!
Thanks Corrie! If I remember right, the only changes I made to the pattern was to use smaller needles (US 4&6) and I did 1/4” less ribbing to make for my 7 year old niece.
How did you add the beads? Did you just sew them on?
Hi Ashlie, I pre-string the beads and slide them up as I knit. Although, I'm sure you could sew them on if you wanted to.
Thanks Amy! One more question - did you use DK weight yarn for both of them? Your butterfly hat looks like it isn't as thick as the original pattern and I like the look of yours bettter :o)
Hey Corrie, I used Fantasy Dark Horse Yarn for these hats... which according to Ravelry, is Aran / 10 ply. But I'm not sure how accurate that is. Is that helpful? I don't know. :)
