This hat is made from a mitten chart I found in Magnificent Mittens by Anna Zilboorg. You can make a hat out of any mitten pattern.
For an adult’s hat, you simply double the number of stitches and pattern repeats and knit the same length as you would for a mitten. Making a child’s hat from an adult mitten pattern is a little more complex. In this hat, I worked 3 repeats of the main pattern for the circumference and I worked for the full length. The hat will not pull down snugly on the top of the child’s head. Instead it will fold over on the top.
Purchase on this site and we’ll add this pattern to your Ravelry.com library.
