This design is perfect for Summer. The gaps on the sides make sure you don't get heated up while the brim keeps the sun off your little ones's face. It works up really quick once you get into the rhythm of the pattern and you might even be able to skip all the counting. Make the flowers in coordinating colors of your choice, add a contrasting band, add a satin ribbon, the possibilities are just endless. This hat would go well with my Strappy Sandals or my Sporty Sandals and I will be designing a flip flops next to pair with this one too.
Gauge while working in the round is explained in teh pattern.
