I finally finished the Hat to match the sweater for Juliet my sister new grand-daughter. I used the same pattern as this hat but used a smaller needle. Knit with Size 4 circulars and the same yarn. I threaded the three remaining matching buttons and just did a chain to create 3 loops. I have no idea if she will be able to wear both together. She may have to grow into the hat. Haven't heard from yet how they fit. I hope to one day get a picture of her wearing them.
I mailed the hat out on Wednesday. I received a thank you note from Juliet when she received the sweater, gotta love these kids who have their own note cards!
