Pattern Description:

The weather here in the northern hemisphere is getting nippy; well, it should be, but let's face it, it hasn't yet, but I certainly think it will!!! Your little girl and her doll will look adorable dressed in these matching headwarmers to go outdoors or over to a friend's house to play.

This is a great yarn stashbusting project. Just dig through your yarn for the sportweights and knit away!

I like the Bernat baby sportweight yarns; they're nice and stretchy. Don't be too concerned about the gauge because between the stretchiness and the placement of buttons (as the closure), it is completely adjustable. My models are 3 and 5.5 years.

The headwarmers are knit in a twisted knit rib pattern in rows - EASY! The I-cord flower uses the same needles and instructions are given in the pattern for making an I-cord. I think the I-cord flower would also look adorable in a contrasting color.
