My friend Michaela's daughter Amelia is turning one soon and is having a Mexican themed birthday (I think her parents just really wanted an excuse to drink margaritas...). Michaela asked me if I could knit her a sombrero. While I can appreciate a good challenge, I couldn't figure out how I could knit a sombrero since the rim of the hat needed to be sturdy and the yarn was inevitably gonna be floppy.
So, instead I decided to knit her a little poncho for her party. The nice thing about this is that hopefully she can wear all winter long.
