I knit these hats very quickly. The pattern is very easy to remember. The one Pumpkin is wearing was knit on a size 4 while the one above was knit on a size 8. I used the same I Love this Cotton yarn. I don't know who will be the recipient for these hats. I do know it won't be for any of our Northern relatives. The holes make it impractical. I'm knitting for Christmas.
