    One more great project...but as a beginner, I would be thankful if you could add the needles size and an example of the yarn you use.

    What kind of yarn is this, and what is the size of the needles used in the pattern?

    cute hat...i've made them myself...but it would really help (especially begining knitters!) to have the size of the knitting needles and yarn in the instructions...different sized needles especially can produce vastly different sized finished products!!
