These little toppers are as sweet as can be! They are knit using Baby Blossom DK, a yarn that is dyed to create the look of Fair Isle knitting. All you have to do is knit in stockinette and the yarn makes the bands and the flower motifs. The hat is a a traditional stocking cap that is knit flat and seamed up the back but you can pick your variation: turned up ribbing, button tab, top knot, or ear flaps. The pattern has directions for all four styles so all you have to do is pick your color. The hat is sized for newborn through 2 years. It can be machine washed and dried flat.
