While I usually design toys, I've also created a few accessory patterns. This hat was originally designed for my older child when he was an infant, and later I added more sizes because the hat was so popular. This is a simple and fun knit with lots of texture and cute owl cables, in sizes for your whole family. You can choose from 3 different brim styles to suit your preferred style and fit. It works up quickly in chunky weight yarn, making a cozy winter hat. The pattern is intermediate level because it is knit in the round, and has cables.
