Check out the model...isnt she adorable? Thats Hailey, my 7 year old daughter. This was my first attempt at finishing the honeycomb stitch pattern. I had tried (pic below) to make one with smaller (size 4) needles....man was that ever a struggle. Broke my needle and that was that. It was much easier on the bigger (size 9) needles. Anyhow, you can find the honeycomb stitch hat pattern on youtube. I have learned everything I know on youtube...much better than book patterns if you ask me.
