With just one or two skeins of yarn, you can whip up a quick baby gift or fun headwarmer for any member of your family!
Personally, I love working hats from the top down toward the ears. The fussiness of juggling needles with so few stitches pays off quickly. Because you’re increasing to the right number of stitches for the recipient’s head, you can simply stop when it fits. (No more guessing how many stitches to cast on for a good fit!) Plus, earflaps are a breeze to position and work down off the sides, if you are so inclined.
Unpatterns® are ‘road maps’ to get you from cast on to finishing without having to rely on someone else’s stitch-by-stitch instructions. This Unpattern, like the others in the series, helps you put together a project the fun way: by falling in love with some yarn and creating a design uniquely your own. On the inside pages you will find a visual overview of the project, plus diagrams and step-by-step instructions to help you build your ideal head topper!
