Pattern Description:

What can brighten up a gloomy day more than colors? What else says spring more than a bunch of flowers?

No matter what the reason, this is THE perfect hat to make your little girl's heart leap with joy and put a smile on everyone around her.

All are the same but each is different! The sky is the limit while decorating your hat, let your creativity bloom!

This perfectly fitting beanie style hat is written for 7 sizes, from newborn to adult. It includes a photo tutorial on how to make and attach flowers and the coolest thing is - no purling necessary! The hat is worked inside out! No friend with sewing or finishing? The pattern include all the necessary details with pictures!

Kveta is a Czech girl's name (=bloom, flowers).

This is the perfect project for all your beautiful scraps, waiting to star!

Would you like to have a princess cape or cowl to match your little one's flowery hat? Ask any little girl and you will hear "Yes, yes, yes!". And to satisfy your inner girly girl you can make one for yourself too; the capelet sizing goes up to size adult!
The capelet is meant to hug your shoulders gently without adding any bulk for adult sizes; yet there is a room to grow for children sizes.

Too hot for a sweater, but too cold to go without one? Capelet gets you covered!
Perfect accessory whether you need to keep out the morning chill or cover your shoulders while wearing summer dress, fully buttoned or partially open at the neckline or bottom edge :)

The pattern includes options for button or snap closure, and detailed directions on how to attach ribbon (snaps) and decorate the capelet with flowers.

Let us use all our pretty scraps of yarn to make flowery mitts and mittens!
