Strawberry Shortcake Hat

from Route 45
(6) Name: 'Knitting : Strawberry Shortcake Hat
Strawberry Shortcake Hat
Strawberry Shortcake Hat

Basic Skills Necessary:

  • knit
  • crochet
  • knitting-in-the-round

Pattern Description:

I love the way this hat looks on the little ones. It's great any time of year. It covers the ears making it warm for cold months, but it's still pretty sassy for the warmer months too!

The main part of the hat is knit and the brim, bill and stem are crocheted.

Beading is the easiest thing ever! Instructions on how to add the beads are included (they are not strung on first. You will work them in as you knit.)

This project can easily be worked up in a day! As a bonus, instructions are also given in the pattern for striped legwarmers.
