Ava's Bunny Hat!

I finished Ava's bunny hat last week. It is so cute. I love it!!! The pattern is in the book, Itty-Bitty Hats, by Susan B. Anderson. The yarn I used was the Sublime Kid Mohair. I thought the yarn was perfect for the hat because of the little bit of fuzz.

The hat is really easy to make. If you have never seen the book, you are missing out on the cutest baby hats ever.
