    Oh my goodness… I love them – and they will now be adorning my daughter’s Barbie collection since we have nowhere to go this NYE. Cutest little project though, y’all are always so creative.

      Glad you’ll enjoy them, Andrea! I had a blast covering every bottle in my house. Once I got started….well, the ketchup needed one, the lemon juice, the mustard… :-D

    I love these! I made one with cotton (which I didn’t like so much) and one with wool (which I did like!)…what kind of yarn did you use for these?

    • Mom

      Hi Camille! I used wool. It’s made by Mirasol – and is called Hacho. It’s a dk weight 100% wool. I liked them out of wool also because they stretch, and spring back, like cotton doesn’t so much.

    oh, how cute they are. I don’t knit at all…but, maybe somebody I know can make me some from your gift of a pattern…. thanks for it. I want some of my little bears to have one!!

      You’re welcome BumbleVee! Maybe you can trade a knitter something to get them to knit some for you! (I’m big on bartering)

    Thank you for sharing this tutorial. I am wanting to learn how to knit and this looks like a good small project to start with. I pinned the picture to my pinterest page with a comment including your webpage. Thanks!

      I see Share The Love for facebook and twitter but not an option to link to pinterest. Is that an option? I could be a dork because I am not sure what a tumbler or digg is. Thanks for your help.

        Hi Leah,
        I use pinterest too so I’m extremely bummed that it’s not yet an option in our social media sharing plugin. However, I have looked into it and they do say it’s coming soon so I’m keeping my fingers crossed that it’s REALLY soon! Hopefully you’ll see it as an option on our blog very soon!

    Super cute idea! I’ve included it in a blog post about my favourite things this week: http://www.matinlapin.com/2012/01/my-favourite-things-this-week_08.html

    Hello!
    I love your pattern but was wondering if you give me an idea on how to convert it to crocheting?? Unfortunately I don’t knit but would love to gift these to friends and family!!
    If there’s no easy conversion, do you start at the opening or the end of the hat – I can’t tell from the knitting instructions, sorry! But I might be able to work it out if I knew which end to start from :)
    Thank you!!

      Hi Clare,
      I started from the opening of the hat and worked upward toward the smaller end. Happy crocheting! :-)

        Thank you for your quick reply!
        I figured it out myself, but started at the small end and worked down to the opening, it looked pretty good and the birthday girl loved it!
        Sorry I didn’t make any notes, just tried my best to get it looking like yours.
        Thank you again!

    Love these! Did you use 4 dp needles for the round?

    • Mom

      I can’t remember whether I used 4 dpn’s or 3 for the round, Kathleen, but either way will work! Glad you’re enjoying them. :-)

    What LENGTH circulars did you use?
    These ‘nitecaps’ are sweet.

      I used double pointed needles, Mel. :-)

        Thanx for the quick reply.
        I’m not very good with DPN’s.
        I wish you had a how-to-video for this pattern.

    Oh, now I’ve got it figured out. I’m new to knitting and I just got 3.5mm straight needles. I’ve spent a lot of time trying to figure out how to knit in the round on straight needles. I wish I’d have seen that this pattern uses dp needles. Maybe update the instructions for newbies like me. Cute pattern, once I get my dp needles, I’ll try again.

      Updated the pattern to indicate double pointed needles, ski. Glad you were able to figure it out!
