The pattern is called Angora Beret, although it’s not really a beret, more of a Roundish Thing That Goes on Your Head. There’s a pattern on Ravelry called Angora Beret that uses Peter Rabbit, but this is not that. It’s quite similar, though.

I’m fairly certain I have enough yarn left over that I could knit a whole other hat with the rest of the skein. If getting one hat out of a rabbit isn’t a good enough magic trick, then what about getting two hats?
