A Mavis hat for Cooper

Are you noticing a trend? This hat pattern is just the cutest and now that I've knit it twice for gifts, I decided (and Nicholas chimed in too) that Cooper needed one as well. It stays on his head, keeps him warm, doesn't fall in his eyes, and looks so darn adorable.


I captured a few of these photos before I sewed on the button, but they were too cute not to include. ;)  I'm thrilled and he seems content when he's wearing it, so that's a success!

The links with the knitting projects are to project pages which then include pattern links.
