Babies can pull off the most whimsical accessories, giving you the perfect opportunity to knit something fun like this easy hat with sporty stripes and jaunty tassels. It finishes so quickly, you’ll want to make more than one! The stripes use small amounts of yarn, so this is a great project for using up your leftover yarn. This hat makes a nice companion to the Striped Baby Jacket, another pattern in the same book.
