Pattern Description:


This hat is perfect for a boy or a girl, thus the title Gnomeo or Juliet. :-) The pattern includes sizing information for size/age 0-6 months, 6-12 months and 1-3 years of age. The yarn I used in the photos was some really funky art yarn that had huge swirls of super bulky red wool - those big red balls are NOT part of the pattern, they were part of the fun yarn I used. Unless you use yarn with those large bumps, your finished hat will look similar to the hat in the first photo (which is the same hat turned inside out). This pattern would also work for millspun (aka craft store) yarn (worsted weight) if you make sure your gauge is correct - so be sure to check your gauge (instructions for gauge and when/how to change hook size is included with the pattern).

This pattern would be perfect for a beginner- there are no tricky stitches except the decreasing stitch so I have included detailed instructions for that stitch. A perk of working with handspun yarn is the yarn does all the work - you don't need tricky stitches to make the finished product look amazing because the yarn looks amazing!
