This is a detailed written knitting pattern in pdf format for a cute butterfly themed baby's hat, the butterflies flutter diagonally up the side of the hat. The detailed written pattern includes charts and photos. The garment is knit flat on two needles in stocking stitch and reverse stocking stitch, with the butterflies added using Duplicate Stitch (Swiss Darning). The pattern includes a final page on "How to work Duplicate Stitch/Swiss Darn". I used Debbie Bliss Rialto DK which is 100% wool, however a cotton yarn would work just as well and would be nice for the spring! BASIC SKILLS NECESSARY knit purl cast on 2x2 rib decrease duplicate stitch GAUGE 22 stitches and 30 rows to 4 inches using US 6 (4mm) needles over stocking stitch. SIZING / FINISHED MEASUREMENTS 0-3(3-6:6-18) months COLORWAY Duck egg blue, cream and pale pink

I have a passion for designing knitwear for babies and children, I then write up the designs as patterns to share with other knitters. Inspiration comes from the countryside near where I live and my own children. However, the knitwear design has to come second to my part time job, the household chores and one of my high maintenance cats, Basil! Keep up to date with my pattern design and Basil's exploits at
