The hat began much larger than I expected and I somehow miscounted my stitches. After unraveling it and starting over from scratch I was able to successfully finish it. I made it a bit longer so that it could be worn to cover the ears or be folded up. I topped it off with a pom-pom made with a small Clover Pom-Pom maker.
I began Keith's beanie the night before Christmas Eve and completed it on Christmas Eve in roughly 4-5 hours total. I was able to stuff it into his stocking as a surprise. He wore it on Christmas day and even posed for me for this blog.
