Description from Knitty.com:
My girls are total opposites. One’s serious, the other silly. One colors in the lines, the other colors on her belly.
The one thing they agree on is how to wear their hair. And with the five and under crowd, pigtails are in.
To keep their hair looking neat in the winter I designed this lace hat with openings for the pigtails.
The lace is a simple 5-stitch pattern with a four row repeat. It is super stretchy and fits all sizes from a toddler to an adult. It makes a good first lace pattern, and can be knit up in a few evenings as a last minute gift.
