small skill level requirement Beginner

  • cast on
  • knit and purl

Pattern Description:

A sweet and special hat for your little one! The Petula features a scalloped edge, baby bobbles and a stem with petal topknot.

All these techniques are fully explained in the pattern and are not difficult to do. My patterns are written in a non-traditional way to be very beginner-friendly. I use few, if any, abbreviations and give instructions in a row-by-row format in easy-to-read large type with a color picture of the finished project.

This pattern uses very little yarn so you can splurge on a bit of luxury - even cashmere! It makes a very special baby gift that can become a family heirloom.

Kits are available for this project - just add needles!


10 stitches = 2" on double-pointed needles in stockinette after blocking

Sizing / Finished Measurements:

  • Approximately 14" in circumference for newborn to 12 months


  • US size 5 straight needles
  • four US size 5 double-pointed needles
  • at least 60 yds. of a fingering or lightweight angora/wool blend or similar such as alpaca/wool or mohair/wool
  • large eye needle to weave in ends
