Kate Oates is the designer for Tot Toppers & When I Grow Up. She enjoys designing hats and garments for babies and children in particular, these projects often reflect a whimsical spirit. Kate's When I Grow Up line is for those of us who are not tots, featuring a modern classic style. Kate also strives to add specifically to the growing body of knits for boys as she has three of her own! You can find her patterns at your local yarn store or online. She also does freelance work for a variety of publications.
In her non-knitting life, Kate has just finished up a PhD in Political Science from the University of Florida. She lives with her family in South Carolina, which includes husband Ryan, Jesse, Charlie & Oliver (3 very handsome Tot Topper's models) and beloved dogs Cooper and Lou. You might also see the Oates' clan at a Clemson football game. Go Tigers!
Rectangular hats are easy to knit and ultra adorable. There is no shaping involved, and this one can be knit exactly to the proper length for its recipient without any pattern modification. This cap is worked bottom up with a simple cable repeatit's a great first cabling project. The stitch
pattern also makes it super stretchy, so consider knitting a size up for an even longer wear-time on your growing child. Shown in size Toddler on sweet little Addie May, who just had her first birthday.
