BOGO Hat Duo
This pattern includes two hats that are designed to coordinate with my Seamless Kimono patterns for babies and children. The TEXTURED BEANIE pattern is a classic style that has been updated with the addition of a rolled brim and sophisticated textured band. PIXIE POINTS is deceptively simple! This adorable hat looks looks like a square when laying flat, but when worn the corners form “kitten ears”. Embellish the points with tassels or pom-poms for even more fun!
Both hats are knit in the round from brim to crown and are suitable for the advanced beginner.
