When my little girlie wore this hat, I always imagined she should be skipping happily through the forest. This conjured up images from the fairy tale, Hansel and Gretel. So this hat came to be known as Baby Gretel~ because babies and toddlers cannot skip through the forest alone.

If you dislike DPNs, you can use another method of small diameter knitting in the round. The larger 2 sizes are big enough to use a 16” circular needle.
