The best bit about a project for me, is getting to the end. That’s not to say I don’t enjoy the creative process, I most certainly do; I just find that the most rewarding part for me is holding up the finished piece :)
This pattern is a simple hat for newborn babies that makes a great gift and only takes 20 minutes from start to finish, so it’s ideal; especially if it’s a last minute thing!
