Winter headband and kitty hat

This is called "hugs-and-kisses-with-love headband." Whew that's a mouthful! I love this headband! It is so warm! I walk to my classes almost everyday. Since, it is winter I need something to keep my ears warm. The pattern for this is in "101 Designer One-Skein Wonders."

I made this hat for my friend Anji. This is the 3rd kitty hat that I have made her in 3 years. The first one is believed to be taken by her former roommate. The second one I made was a little too large for her. (Bad gauging on my part.) She washed it felted! Yuck! It looked like a dirty kitty with matted fur when it was dry!

So, this is # 3. It is properly gauged, and my friend no longer has a roommate. I think this one is now safe from all issues. The pattern for this is called the "Official Kitty62 Hat," and is available for FREE online. I used "Yarn Bee: Luscious" as my yarn. My gauge was very different from the one in the pattern. I adjusted my cast on etc. to compensate for the difference.

That ear warmer is super duper fancy. I'm impressed with your cabling!
