Note: this pattern is for both boy and girl versions

I wrote this pattern especially with bamboo yarn in mind (although a cotton yarn can easily be substituted). I wanted to design a spring hat with a girl and a boy version and bamboo yarn makes me think of spring. It has a lovely shine to it that reminds me of sunny spring days.
The body of the hat is identical in both versions. The girl version includes a little bracelet, just for fun!
