Yesterday I finished this little project - a Santa Beanie!
It's based on the baby hat I knit last month...
...with a few modifications.
The red is "Scarlet", Vanna's Choice by Lion Brand and the white is "Natural" Bernat Soft Boucle.
I followed the directions and used the two sizes of needles as outlined in the original pattern. The end is stuffed with wool scraps and tightened to create a pom-pom effect.
Notice the "laddering"? I didn't know what that was until I discovered this video at VeryPink. Lots to learn!!
Next project? Perhaps these mini-stockings. Aren't they sweet?
