It knit up really fast. The ear flaps were easier than I imagined (it was my first time doing them) and the iCord too. At first I was a bit nervous about the iCord but I found many informative videos on YouTube and it was a cinch! This is now my go-to hat for gifts for little ones.
On a high note, I wanted to crochet the eyes, only problem was - I never crocheted before in my LIFE! So one late night, and after many failed attempts, I learned how to do it!
Keep Calm and Cast On, Until Next Time,
