The yarn is handspun:
This was a fairly uneven, thick-and-thin spun yarn to get me back into the swing of things. I really like the uneven texture of the hat. You can tell it's homemade, which is kind of nice.
The yarn was bulky, so I cast on 56 stitches on size US 10 needles. Knit for about 6 inches, kitchener the top closed. Add a pom-pom to each corner.
The hat is going to Dollar's niece, who just turned 1. I think the hat might be a little big but hope it gets a lot of use next winter.
