Speedy snail is so called because the texture pattern on the hat reminded me of a snail’s shell but it takes only 3-4 hours to make. Sitting at or just above the ears, this fun sunhat for a baby of approximately 12 months old has both a peak at the front and neck flap at the back to keep the sun off. The I-cord loop on top adds one more fun feature.
The main part of the hat is worked from the bottom up to the top loop in one piece, and then stitches are picked up to knit the neck flap and the peak on afterwards. The only stitching required is to form the loop on the top and to secure the underside of the peak.
The sample shown used 76 yards of Lily Sugar n Cream. Check your tension as this may affect yardage needed.
