Knitting Classes!!

 Isn't that the cutest girl...I mean hat ever?!?  Thanks to my cute little model to help showcase a knitting project that is such a fun knit!  Most beginners think the only thing they will ever knit is a long, straight, boring scarf.  Not true!  With what we call circular needles, you can create hats, sweaters and socks!
 This pony tail hat was inspired by my cute kiddo trying to wear her winter hat with a pony tail.  Doesn't really work too well.  So I created a button band on the back of the hat that can either be worn with a a pony tail or button it up to wear as a plain hat. 
Knitting a hat will help you learn how to work decreases and I will show you a super stretchy cast-on.  Hopfully this inspires you to come and try your hand at knitting.  It really is a different fun way to express yourself! I would love to introduce you to a new hobby...I am warning you, it is addictive!
