This design is part of the New Girl layette collection from Tot Toppers and is shown with a coordinating piece from the set. New Girl is available as a booklet or an e-book and the patterns are now available individually as well.
Diamonds are a girl’s best friend, so have this cozier version ready and waiting upon her arrival. • Bitty ear flaps are knit first, then worked into the cast on round. The hat is finished with an i-cord edging, a pompom and braided tassels. This plushy soft cap is the only piece of the collection to feature all-over Fair Isle. • Consider working only one set of diamonds for a baby born in warmer weather to make the hat a little lighter. • Shown in Newborn.
