Hearts are a favorite motif of mine and in my book, every month of the year is a good time to celebrate everything that hearts represent. The Love & Hearts Hat is written in four sizes from baby to child, and the largest size fits a large child, teen or even an adult. The hat is worked from the brim up with skinny stripes with a simple heart motif in stranded colorwork. The crown decreases are worked to create a small point that is topped off with a tiny heart. The heart is picked up and knit on.

Love & Hearts is the sweetest hat for any season.
