The Sea Star Beanie is full of texture, making it an excellent pattern for solid colors. The shaping of the crown leaves the top of the hat with a design similar to a pinwheel or a sea star (with six legs), hence its name. The hat is more fitted around with a slightly slouchy length. Directions are given for four sizes: baby, toddler, child, and teen/adult. Also included are some tips on adjusting the hat’s circumference. This hat is made using worsted weight yarn.
