Knotted Openwork Baby Hat

An exclusive Colorful Stitches pattern, this hat for babies 6 to 18 months old (will stretch to fit toddlers up to 3 years) looks like a field of wild flowers. Knit flat, it starts with a picot cast on. Available as PDF or hard copy.
The four-row pattern is easy and quickly memorized. Two rows use yarnovers, the other two are simply purled. The stitch’s texture comes from lifting one stitch out of three over the other two stitches – in effect clustering these stitches. Instruction for the picot cast on is given. The crown is knit in stockinette stitch to simplify shaping.
