Woohoo, I’m back again with a new project done for my 18 months old daughter. This time I created a hat using both, knitting and crochet technique. It’s still a fairly simple pattern and beginners shouldn’t have much trouble with it, but if you are completely new to crochet, you might want to check my slouchy santa hat knitting pattern to have a better idea on how to knit the bobbles. Feel free to experiment with yarn colour and make a unique combination of the hat and hearts. Big hugs to all of my readers and talk to you soon.

Knitting materials and tools:

<> Knitting Needles 4.5 mm (US 7/UK 7) circular and DPN;
