Strap this aviator's helmet on and your little one is ready for adventure! This cute cap has garter stitch flaps, cables on the cap, and a chin strap to keep the hat on even in high wind. And because those flyboys and flygirls deserve the best, it is knit in Sublime's Baby Cashmere Merino Silk DK, a luxurious blend of those three fibers that is wonderfully soft but still machine washable. The earflaps and the front flap are knit first, then they are joined with additional cast-on stitches to make the body of the hat. It is knit flat and then seamed up the back. It is sized for 1-6 months (6-12 months, 1-2 years, 2-3 years).
The kit includes the pattern book The Third Little Sublime Hand Knit Book and the yarn. For this project you will also need:
- single point needles in US size 6 (OR SIZE NEEDED TO OBTAIN GAUGE)
- single point needles in US size 3
- 3 stitch holders, spare needles, or waste yarn
- 3 buttons
- tapestry needle
