Striped Baby Sunhat - Sz 0-18 Months

from Route 45
(6) Name: 'Knitting : Striped Baby Sunhat - Sz 0-18 Months
Striped Baby Sunhat - Sz 0-18 Months

Striped Baby Sunhat - Sz 0-18 Months

Basic Skills Necessary:

  • knit
  • purl

Pattern Description:

This very stretchy ruffled sunhat is lightweight for crisp cool spring or autumn days and nights. It uses the Garter stitch throughout - first in rows for the body of the hat and then in rounds for the ruffle.

This is a great project for using up a growing pile of stash yarn!

For this project, I used Caron Simply Soft 100% acrylic yarn for its softness and elasticity.

If you are not a crocheter (and for the most part, I am NOT), you can embellish the hat instead with a flower or bow barrette purchased from a craft store.
