Cats and hats

The final Christmas hat is a Kitty Cat hat for Miss Wren. You can read about my history with this pattern here.

The pattern is an old Patons pattern that’s knit flat and seamed. I’ve been trying to work out a way to knit it seamlessly for a few years. I’ve got it down for the face and neck openings, but the way the ears and back come together makes it tricky to do without seams.

I think I’ve finally got it figured out (it’s going to take some grafting and short rows), and I’m just about to put my theory to the test.

For yarn, I’m using Patons Decor, it’s mostly acrylic with just a touch of real wool. The colour is the creatively named “florals”
