When All Else Fails
The hat for the Little Leprechaun sweater is the cutest thing that almost never was. I frogged the little thing 4 times before I finally decided to actually follow the directions. For some reason I thought that just improvising the design would suffice but apparently the designer knows what they are doing and I don't when it comes to fitting hats on baby's heads. I did forgo the doubled over rib for a simpler version and the tassels were exchanged for pom poms. I also knit it in the round using the Magic Loop method and then used a 3 needle bind off instead of knitting it in pieces and sewing it up. Having said all that it seems I did make a lot of changes to the original pattern after all.
