MY DESIGN IDEAS AND ADVICE
I designed this one for the boys, and once again it came back from my knitter and I wanted one! This straightforward pattern has no complicated abbreviations or tricky techniques. I designed it to be floppy but if you prefer the hat to be more like a beanie then you can simply knit it to a shorter length.
