hats for christmas

I made matching hats for Mick and Little M. The only difference is that Little M's got a pom pom on top.
It was such an ordeal making Mick's hat and it really shouldn't have been. The hat was made three times. The first time I used the wrong length circular needle and it came out huge and ridiculous. The second time I made the hat I don't know what went wrong but it was still big and looked like it was meant for a college freshman frat boy who listens to a lot of Bob Marley if you know what I mean. That's just not Mick's style so the third time I just made it smaller and used a rib edge instead of a garter stitch edge.
The pattern is from Last Minute Knitted Gifts and I used Manos del Uruguay yarn.
I can't wait to see them wearing them together and take a picture.
