I love nothing more than to curl up with a cup of hot chai, it warms my heart and soul, making me blissfully happy. My little one knows the sweet smell of chai spice well and magically appears for cuddles on the couch as soon as my brew is ready. Tiny tender moments shared and memories that will last forever. She asked for a pink hat and I knew it could only be a mini Chai.

Easy to knit and cleverly worked inside out, to minimise purling, this pretty hat knits up in no time. The striking cable has been scaled down for the smaller sizes but the design still makes a bold statement.

This mini version of the popular Chai hat is worked in soft squishy worsted weight yarn, perfect for the little ones in your life. Written in six sizes from itty bitty new born to age 6-10 years this fun hat is bound to be a hit with all ages.
