Sugar Bear Hat
Join us in October 2010 for the KAL in the Tot Toppers & When I Grow Up Group. KAL also includes options for the matching cocoon and a hooded cardigan, be sure to check them out.
Your little sugar will love looking sweet in this unbearably cute cap! This hat is worked in the round, bottom up, and ears are worked separately in the round as well. The stitch pattern is easy to memorize and adds interest to the knit. Check out the coordinating cocoon for newborns, and hooded cardigan for children up to size 10. Hat shown in size 0-6 months. Size down for a more snug fit (as shown on toddler).
