Kitty Hats for all! (Plus some stripes!)

How could I possibly resist making more of these adorable Kitty Hats! This time though, I knit them in the round and used a three needle bind off on the crown. Muy simple!

The orange one I made with size 9 needles for Baby Ryan, just in time for his first birthday!
