Actually, all the LTK patterns I have tried so far have been great. I like how things are made simply and the instructions are laid out so nicely so I can easily see what I need to do. So far, I've done the bucket hat, picky pants the the crown.

I just finished the crown tonight and it is awesome. I can't believe how great it turned out. I seem to have misplaced my camera but will try to get a pic tomorrow. I can see why so many of you like the mocassins pattern. How cool it was to pull the crown out of the washer and have it suddenly really look like a crown. Very neat. My son wanted to put it on right away. He loves it. I need to make 2 more for a care package for my friend and her family in the next week. I also had plans for a couple other things for her new baby. I am going to have to choose I think.

Anyways, great simple pattern!

Yeah, take a pic. I made one and the points turned out a little wonky, but it might have been my front loading washer and the felting process. I'll take a pic of the one I made later.

For those of you who have made it how old was the person you're making it for and what size did you make?

I just measured DS who is almost 5 and his head measured 21 inches. So I should make the large right? I can felt it down if it's too big also right? I'd rather it be too big than too small. And he's always had a slightly larger than normal head.

That is adorable!! I love the contrasting points! I might do that!!'

DS's birthday is Thursday so I'm making this for him as a surprise. They love to know what I'm knitting and it's killing him to not know what I'm doing. I just keep telling him "Wait and see!"

I measured him again and he's a solid 21. I even measured myself and I'm a 22 so I guess the large is right. Thanks for the assurance!!

h. my. gosh. I LOVE (!) the contrast points. TOO cute!!

I'mso glad ya'll love the patterns, I feel like each is a little pice of me


Oh, and on the sizing - defintiely go by head measurement. My 7 year old has a bigger head than I do, LOL, so for him I'd defintiely do the adult size, even though he's just a kid. he's got his papa's big ol' noggin, LOL

Wow, thanks for the praise Theresa. What a confidence booster for this newbie knitter. Thanks for the help you gave me with sizing. I have a big order on your site for more patterns and have also been tempted by the Raglan and the Lucy Hat but not sure I'm advanced enough for those yet. Oh and those oh'alls are so darned cute too.
