Rectangular hats are easy to knit and ultra adorable. There is no shaping involved, and this one can be knit exactly to the proper length for its recipient without any pattern modification. This cap is worked bottom up with a simple cable repeat—it’s a great first cabling project. The stitch pattern also makes it super stretchy, so consider knitting a size up for an even longer wear-time on your growing child. Shown in size Toddler on sweet little Addie May, who just had her first birthday. Modeled with the Sarabeth Cardigan (also by Tot Toppers)
