In French ski resorts, skiers wear the most wild and fun hats. This little cap was designed to keep your baby or toddler up with the locals. The elongated point and pompom tip, knit in any medium weight, beautiful variegated yarn, will give you a hat that makes everyone who sees your little one stop and admire. The rolled rim frames your child's face in color. And the best part... It is amazingly easy to knit! The pattern was created by a knitwear designer in Lyon, France. BASIC SKILLS NECESSARY You will need to know how to cast on stitches, knit stitches, knit in a round, knit two stitches together, cast off, seam the finished work, and knit in ends of the finished work. SIZING / FINISHED MEASUREMENTS The hat is soft and stretchy, and will easily fit either a baby, age about 6 to 12 months, or a toddler, age 12 months to about 2 1/2 years.
