This little guy was so much fun to make! And he only took 2 evenings to do as well. That includes all the little bits and pieces to make him up. If you want to replicate him, I suggest you buy Mirage wool. It’s generally R5 a ball. Make sure you buy the double knit variety though, and note that you will need 2 balls of yellow to make up the small child’s beanie like I did here. Adult ones may need a fair amount more yellow wool.
I’m really glad that he ended up looking like such a happy little guy. This is a great project for winter because it helps keep your hands warm while you are busy and the bright colours are cheerful. I also really like that this is slightly different from the usual Repeat Crafter Me beanies, as I didn’t have to make pom-poms to complete the look. I love pom-poms, but I’m not the best at making them.
Just a bit of information for the person I made this beanie for: All the kitties helped with this project. Whether it was chasing the balls of wool around, attacking the crochet hook or biting through the strand of wool I was busy with at the time. Also, Chris tried to fit this on this head and discovered that it only might cover one of his ears or maybe his nose. It really it a small pattern for kids.
