Pussy Cat Hat

I couldn't help myself.... I was attacked by one of those free patterns on the label of a cheap ball of yarn. It was super cute and I couldn't resist!
This is the Pussy Cat Hat from the label of a ball of Phentex Merit.
The label says it takes 3 balls but I made it with just 1 ball..... To be honest, I did make the smallest size and I tightened up the guage to make it even smaller. The smalles size was a size 2 but I wanted to make it for my 6 month old. (she's about the size of your average one year old though)
I think it turned out really cute.

I made the hat for my grandson and now several people want to make it. I have lost the label with the pattern. Can someone email me a copy?

To everybody who is searching for the pattern. I found the pattern on the ball band of Phentex Merit yarn. I have since lost the pattern... However, I recently saw it featured in a little pattern booklet in WalMart. I went back to buy it (after I searched for my old copy and couldn't find it) but they were all sold out. But, it does exist out in the world somewhere.... Just not with me. Sorry.

Hi! This pattern was originally published on a Paton's booklet called "Family Headwear and Scarves Knitting Crochet Patterns Beehive Patons No. 98". Finally got it and made it for a friend. You can see the hat here: http://easyknittingpatterns.blogspot.com/search?updated-max=2010-02-15T10:13:00-07:00&max-results=1
I am still not sure if this is still under copyright law, so I did not publish it on my blog. But... I saw it here:
