What are you most proud of? This was a request from a dear friend of mine, for his 10 months old little boy. I didn't work from a pattern, I just googled raccoon pictures and tried to recreate the face

What advice would you give someone starting this project? I'll be honest, I've never liked following patterns, because I always lose counts of stitches and rows... and my hats never looked like the pictures of what they were supposed to be. All I would say is: Don't be scared to improvise, it is fun :)

I love your little racoon hat!!! I'm going to try it! Seems like I'm always fudging or improvising a little to make something my own, so I'm really excited about trying this!! Thank you for sharing!
