Last year I made Martin and Justin Santa Hats. (How I altered that pattern for Martin can be found here). I asked Kay if she would like one too. She said that she needed to have a Mrs. Clause Hat. I had already made a hat that I thought the pattern would make a perfect Mrs. Claus hat. I showed that hat to Kay.
She said, “That would work great in red and white of course. Oh, and I want a pom-pom on the top.”
So this is what I came up with. 🙂
