Happy Friday everyone!
I loved the hat I made for my Doodlebug last year, but it is getting a bit small and she doesn't need the chin ties anymore. I wanted to make her a new summer hat. I went through a bunch of patterns on Ravely, but in the end I could find one I like as much as last year's. So... I made it again, only bigger : )
I really enjoy this pattern (as evidenced by the fact that this is my 3rd time making it). It's quick but varied enough to be interesting. I am endlessly pleased by the neat brim created by folding at the picot edge and picking up the cast-on stitches and knitting them together with the live stitches. And it's free!
Size: 12-24 months
I know this hat tends to run big, so I went with the 12-24 month size for my almost 24 month old. It was a bit big when I finished. My blocking consisted of throwing it in the washer and dryer. I think it came out about perfect.
100% organic cotton
The sport weight of the yarn makes the cotton quite nice to knit. Comes in great colours too.

Can you believe my sweet girl is going to be two next week?!! We are off on our summer holidays in a few hours. I wish you all a wonderful weekend!
