pooh makes his modeling debut

Due to the dearth of children around here, Pooh has been enlisted to model the Kitten Hat. It still needs a button for the chin strap.

Pattern: Kitten Hat, by Joan Gilbertson (sadly unavailable online), purchased at Ingebretsen's in Minneapolis
Yarn: Sandnes Garn, "Kitten" mohair blend (less than 1 skein)
Needles: Clover US 3 bamboo straights

This pattern is very clever, and it was a joy to knit. I wasn't exactly sure how the construction worked until the very end. I really enjoyed the fuzziness and lightness of the Kitten yarn, even though it had a tendency to get a bit tangled up within the confines of the center-pull skein.

So cute! You did an excellent job of taming the mohair. Pooh might not want to give up his new hat.
