Make a cute ruffled flapper hat for yourself, your baby, toddler, or child, or as a present. Pattern features a new take on ruffles that I came up with. Makes a great baby shower gift or photography prop.
Pattern is advanced beginner level. The hat body itself is easy to construct, with the brim being knit and then seamed together and the body is picked up after to make the rest of the hat. Simple decreases are needed for the hat body, k2tog is the only skill used for decreasing. The ruffles are made by picking up into the brim and by knitting with a series of increases: k1fb, m1, and yo is used. A photo tutorial is included for the construction of the ruffles. Pattern is written in standard American English knitting terms. The pattern is color coordinated for sizes (for example, all newborn information is in red, toddler information is in green, etc) to assist the knitter in pattern creation.
