"A special holiday hat for your sweetie," puns Porter. "It's easier than you think-- just carry the worsted weight yarn along the back as you go." This hat defies modest adjectives. It perfectly accomplishes what it sets out to do: be funny and irresistible and charming. It includes a lining, made in one piece along with the visible bi-coloured part, and it even swirls. There's a wee bit of sewing with tacking down the lining (on the inside-- not to show), and attaching the ear tabs/straps-- not too much. To fit children ages 1 - 3.
