I stumbled upon this tutorial a couple weeks ago and thought it would be perfect for the girls for Christmas. I already had one of these started for one of the boys and plans for another for the other. Both sets of hats were quick to put together and the kiddos will love them. The granny hat was really fast and I was able to put both together in about 4-hours. I can see doing these for last minute gifts in the fututre. I just have to make the cording for the boys' hats and then all will be ready to go into stockings Friday night.
