This happy little set first appeared in Petite Purls Magazine and has now been upgraded with an additional size and put into PDF form.

This mama is crazy about polka dots because there is something innately happy about them. My boys also absolutely love it when I wear something they consider interesting. Thus, funky colorful hats for them, and neutrals in a basic infinity cowl for me. • Colorwork is stranded, hats are worked bottom-up and the cowl is worked sideways in the round and grafted for a seamless finish. • Top dog Jesse is wearing size Child, Charlie (age 3) is wearing Toddler and baby Oliver is wearing size 3 months. Oliver is also wearing his Sugar Bear Cardigan (pattern sold separately).
