Pattern Description:

This pattern is one, that I designed, for those of you who are art yarn lovers, or spinners, who wonder, just what you can do with a small amount of it!
This sweet hat features gentle ribbing, for fit, and a lovely flower clip.

This hat pattern uses yarn 6 wraps per inch, a slightly finer of the bulky weights.
Skills Needed:
Knitting in the round, on double pointed needles, Purl, SSK or K2tog.

Pattern comes with a long list of handspun yarns, that would work, for this pattern. I have shopped, so you don't have to! Simply pick a yarn, and follow the pattern!

This hat is for use under direct adult supervision.

For the boy version of this hat (meaning that the entire yarn list is in boy colors), check out the Corbin hat pattern, at:

I have always been inspired, by hand knit items, but it seemed beyond reach, for me...until I took some knitting classes!
From there, it became my relaxation, and creative outlet!
My passion is designing, and I love to spin my own yarns, as well!
I love to see the finished product, on the baby models....
