This was my attempt at Inner Hooker's mouse beanie for Miss G. (If you crochet and don't know Inner Hooker, you need to look her up: Inner Hooker) It looked adorable and very easy to do. Mouse Beanie.
It crocheted up very quickly, the directions were very clear, and I had it all but one ear done by the time we got back from visiting my grandparents.
The only problem: I forgot to check my gauge. And the hat is just a wee bit bigger than it needs to be... And Miss G looks thrilled to get a hat she wont be able to wear for years. But we all got a laugh out of it, I guess that made it worth it. And hey, in a year or so, she'll have a really cute beanie!
Moral of the story: if a hat made for a 9 month year old looks like you could wear it, it might be a little big...
