Amelia Pond – Hat Knitting Pattern

Seriously, I am the girl who waited… waited for more Doctor Who, gah! And still, not enough who! With the Christmas special rolling around, I’m keen to see Capaldi’s Doctor one last time, I’m ready for the feels… but it’s time for a hat pattern. This one has been around a while, but I’ve been waiting for the right time to post it. That time needs to be now. Maybe make this hat for all the people waiting for the Christmas special? It’s a teen-adult size

You will need:
– 4mm circular knitting needles
