Snowflake Hat

 I think this is my favorite hat I have made so far. The love the contrast between the red and white. And who can resist pom-poms? I made this based on a hat that I saw on Pinterest.
I used the basic hat pattern used on the Hello Kitty hats, but added pom-poms in place of the braids (can you tell I'm loving pom-poms right now?). For the applique I used the Star Snowflake pattern. I modified the pattern by using worsted weight yarn and a size G hook.


 This is my first amigurumi project. I think she turned out pretty cute.  I called it a Hug-a-Monster and gifted it to a little friend who needs lots of hugs. I added a heart around the eye (instead of a circle) and added cute pom-poms to make it more girly.
Pattern from CraftBits.

Hello Kitty in Purple

 Our little friend/neighbor was recently diagnosed with leukemia. She has started loosing her hair because of the chemotherapy. Her mom mentioned she like Hello Kitty, and that her favorite color is purple. So, of course I had to make a purple Hello Kitty hat for her. I hear she loves it!
