This whimsical hat features colorful purl ridges and ear-flaps with duplicate-stitched hearts.
2 colors of worsted weight yarn. I used Cascade 220 (color A – pink) & Knit Picks Swish (color B – red).
16” circular needle, size US 7 (4.5 mm) or size needed to obtain gauge (I am a loose knitter so I used size US 6) & additional needles for small-diameter knitting (DPNs, a second circular or a long Magic Loop needle).
5 stitches/inch in stockinette stitch.
Child-sized: 11.75” from point of ear flap to top of pom pom when measured flat; 7.75” from brim to top of pom pom. Includes guidelines for sizing up or down.
