Bavarde is the perfect hat for any girl: coming in 2 different styles, it will make everybody happy!
Simple, crisp and with a fun brim, it knits up in no time.

“Bavarde“ is the French word for chatty: my darling daughter (pictured wearing the hat) is often called “une bavarde” (a chatterbox) in school.

This hat comes in 5 different sizes and 2 style (toque and slouchy), including a doll’s size.
