Curly Snowflake Hat Topper

February 2008
Worsted (9 wpi) ?
This pattern is available for free.

I like adding a bit of a crazy topper to a standard child’s hat. It adds some whimzy and fun to what is otherwise a necessity of winter wear.

In this case I was inspired by my running out of blue yarn and being forced to switch to the cream. The topper has six curly “arms” - which look like a snowflake gone wild on top of the child’s head.

This topper can be added to any bottom-up hat, regardless of the number of stitches used. Pattern instructions are for a 6-stitch repeat hat; simply increase or decrease the number of curls to accomodate your stitch count.

Gauge: Not important. Whatever your gauge was in the hat is fine.
Finished dimensions: Again, depends on your gauge and hat.
