What was your source for this knitting project? Improvisational What are you most proud of? I made this pattern up as I went by looking at a photo my niece sent me of one that was crocheted. What advice would you give someone starting this project? If you want to use up scrap yarn, this is a great way to do it. Just be prepared to spend some time weaving in the ends of all the yarn. I used size 7 needles for the ribbing and size 8 for the main part of the hat and the leggings.
