Here is my completed "I love my sheep hat" hat.

20130808-214430.jpg It's a little small. Next time I will add 10-20 stitches to my cast on. Each pattern repeat is 10 sts. And that might make all the difference...we'll see. This one is going to my favorite little lady, Ova Mae. She's 93 and from Montana. The sheep will be right at home on her head ;) Off to bed now. Maria
