Christmas Tree for a little girl
This hat is going up on Etsy in a few moments but it's a baby girl's hat. Approx. 13 inches in circumference and 5 1/2inches in height. It should fit a standard newborn and possibly up to a 3-4 month old.
I love using this I Love This Yarn and Sparkle collection is soooo pretty. Sometimes what I do is surf the net, google, etsy, whereever and I save photos. When I see the one I like, if it has the owner information, I save that as well. If my item is just like that, I contact them and ask permission to use the "idea". My Jack Skellington hat...Alissa at CutieHats. It was so funny, I convo'd her on Etsy and asked if I could create a hat like hers. She thought I meant use her photo and was super nice trying to explain how hard it is for her to do the work, set up the pics, etc. I said "oh no no no, I mean I want to look at your photo and come up with my own pattern". After a good laugh she basically said 'yeah, duh, it's what we do as artist. We look at things, get ideas and create. Go nuts.' Basically. :)
In this case the only thing similar is it has a tree on it and uses yarn. Either way I think this will make a really great hat for some little girl for Christmas.
