The pattern is for size 6-12 months, but my little model is actually two, so the hat will fit for quite awhile! The pattern includes instructions for knitting the flower as welll. It is knit in the round, so there is nothing to irritate the child's head and no seams for you to sew!

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 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!
