I designed this hat for a very special girl’s second birthday. Her mother nicknamed her Ladybug when we were pregnant with our July 2007 girls and the nickname stuck.

This is a simple hat worked in the round and a good introduction to stranded colorwork and knitting from a chart. I used sport weight but DK or light worsted would work well too. Please feel free to e-mail me with any questions.
