What advice would you give someone starting this project? Simple, rolled brim with a fantastic bobble on top are super easy. The hat pattern is from knitting goddess Susan B. Anderson's Itty Bitty Hats. That rosy topper on the first hat is why I purchased her book so many years ago. A multi colored pom pom is so fun and a simple, one color pom is classic. The Marley topper can easily be for a boy or girl.
