This is the first design in the “When I Grow Up” line by Tot Toppers. Same fun style, but for those that aren’t tots :) I offer a kit for this hat with indie dyer, Yarn Love. Available kits are in my Etsy Store.

A delicate leaf & lace brim sets off this hat for infants through adults. Brim for this hat is knit first in a strip, and then seamed. Stitches for hat body are picked up along brim edge,
and hat is worked from the bottom up. Directions included for two body options, one with a textured dot (featured) and another with crossover twists that lead into crown decreases. Sizing implies stretching for a snug fit, size up if you prefer a looser fitting cap.
