Pattern Description:

Spring is coming (for those of us in the northern hemisphere anyway) and it's time to think of springtime hats for when there is still a chill in the air. This beanie is the perfect accessory for a cardigan or poncho or to accessorize a special occasion outfit.

Instructions for this stretchy little beanie are for the
smallest size with additional sizes in parentheses ( ). Knit in
cotton for a Spring/Summer beanie or acrylic/wool blend
for Fall/Winter. Embellish the beanie with a flower or bow
barrette that may easily be removed to launder the beanie. I
try to use yarns that are machine washable and dryable. The
model is wearing a size 10 - 18 mos. beanie (and is 14
months).

Update: Although I have not altered the pattern instructions, my little model is now 22 months, and I made her the same beanie by casting on 52 stitches and following the pattern for the largest size. I also decided to crochet two rounds of single crochet around the brim in a contrasting color (optional).

I have had many wonderful comments from knitters who have created items from my patterns and like their finished projects, but should ...
