Yes, for Christmas the family got hats knit by me. I searched for the right pattern to replace Mezmur's old hat that I loved so much. I settled on the Stella Pixie Hat. I knit the hat with my favorite yarn and made one change to the pattern. Instead of knitting the neckband separate and adding a button...I picked up stitches around the neck of the hat, knit a band, and knit an i-cord on the ends for tying. I LOVE it.
