It is fully lined and reversible! See pictures.

I designed this hat pattern to be an easy, fast Baby/Toddler hat to make that looks like the military-style hats everyone is wearing these days. Now I am sharing it for others to use.

This pattern is not just a smaller version of the adult cap I make and have listed. This is a child-friendly, softer, less-structured version, and is washable and fully reversible. It's like a floppy hat but but with a cadet shape.

You can get two reversible hats out of two 1/4 yard cuts of fabric or two fat quarters. There are cutting layouts for both included. It is also an excellent project for recycled fabrics.

With practice, this hat comes together quickly. It comes in handy if you need craft show inventory, or a gift...fast.

YOU ARE BUYING A PDF: it includes the pattern, for you to print out on your own printer, and step-by-step color photographs of how to make it.
