Det skulle blive til denne her, fordi Minnie Mouse bare er DEN sødeste Disney-prinsesse. Åbenbart!
Well, so then I got my debut in Japanese knitting patterns. It's not a lack of the patterns, but I haven't plunged into them deep before.
I was going to make this one, because Minnie Mouse is THE cutest Disney-princess. Apparently!
Sløjfen blev rigtig fin!
Everything went well. I cast on the correct number of stitches and knit like the pattern showed. Apart from making the hat a bit longer, since it looked like it would only balance on top of the head, and I prefer hats that stay put.
The bow was really pretty!
The ears needed some fill, and it was an old plastic cut-board that was sacrificed. Because plastic can survive a wash.
So this is the finished hat! The bow got sewn to hat and ears in the sides, to help it stay there.
I used Wollmeise DK and size 4 mm needles, and I do think it succeeded quite well. It weighs 80 grams (without the plastic).
I hope it looks better on the recipient than on me........
