Little Hat

A little hat is a perfect first knitting project. You will learn many important knitting skills and get practice reading a simple pattern at the same time. The best part is that after a small amount of easy knitting, you will have an adorable baby hat to give to a family member or friend, or to put on a favorite stuffed bear or doll. You could even donate your hat to charity—check with local shelters, schools, hospitals, and other charitable organizations to see if they accept donations.

This hat will fit a baby, toddler, or small child (it’s stretchy, so it can fit many different ages).
