I love simple, lightweight hats with easy to memorize patterns. They are the perfect toss in your bag “take-along” project and an easy way to add a bit of style to your day without much effort.

This little hat was inspired by a child’s sweater in a Workbasket magazine. With easy knit and purl patterning and a lightweight yarn, this hat will work up in no time.

This pattern is meant for an adventurous novice to advanced knitter and all those in-between.

Both written and charted directions are included in this pattern. Please read the entire pattern before beginning.
