Sew Cute Child's Knitted Character Hat

Basic Skills Necessary:

  • knit
  • purl
  • k2tog

Pattern Description:

I wanted to create a hat with hair sort of a combination of a rag doll and the character Lalaloopsy for girls ages 3-7. Because of the buttons, I don't recommend it for younger ages.

Most of the hat, except for the ribbing, uses yarn that is doubled, so the hat should be quite warm during cold months ahead in the northern hemisphere!

This is a great yarn stash-busting project, so search through your growing yarn collection before running out to buy more! Go crazy with the hair and make it some funky color!!

  • 3-4 yrs circumference 17 inches, length 7.5 inches

  • 150 yds worsted weight yarn - hair color desired
