This hat was inspired by my fireman hat pattern. I love the cascading FPdc down the hat and it gives a great texture. Add the brim and it's perfect for spring and summer! To spice it up, you could add a flower or use as many colors as you like. If you are comfortable changing colors, or in particular carrying the yarn along, and doing FPdc, you'll find this hat quick and fun to make! Makes preemie to 12 month size! PREFERRED BRAND/YARN I love this yarn, or 100% cotton. COLORWAY Use your favorite colors!
