PATTERN DETAILS

My little granddaughter requested this hat after I made red dog hats for her sister and cousin. It took awhile to come up with a pattern that I felt looked right and girly too. It's warm using double yarn, so it is a great winter hat. It has some good stretch to it (circumference) so it is likely to fit for a couple of winter seasons. The adult version I just created to be funny, but it too is included in this pattern. I shortened the earflap for the adult version, but you can make earflaps any length you desire for either the child or adult hat. BASIC SKILLS NECESSARY Stockinette Stitch Turkish Cast-On for the earflaps (instructions included in pattern) increasing and decreasing stitches GAUGE Using stockinette stitch: 3.25 sts and 5 rows = 1 inch SIZING / FINISHED MEASUREMENTS Circumference - child - 17 inches, adult - 20 inches Height from bottom of earflaps to top of folded over white cap - child - 5 inches, adult - only 4.25 inches (shorter)

Recommended with this pattern

  • US #10.5 16-inch circular needle
  • US #10.5 double pointed needles
  • US #2 double pointed needles

I have been knitting for 60 years and since the grandchildren arrived have been knitting daily. I decided I wanted to create easy predominantly seamless knitting projects because I love knitting in the round, and more important I hate to sew pieces together! I have had many wonderful comments from knitters who have created items from my patterns and like their finished projects, but should you come across a flaw or something that doesn't seem quite right in the instructions, I hope you will contact me! Contact me at woohoopepper@hotmail.com with any of your questions or concerns. You are free to sell your finished items, but please give me credit for the pattern. Thank you and happy knitting!
