I knit this hat specifically for my 8mo daughter. I wanted something feminine, but not pink. And I think that the snowflakes do just that. After I finished the hat I realized it needed the chin strap because she kept pulling it off!
I used 4mm double pointed needles with Pattons Decor worsted weight yarn. I like this yarn because it is a nice wool/acrylic blend that is both warm and washable.
I did not use a pattern just my own experience from having made many hats in the past.
After I finished the hat I needed to add the chin strap because dear daughter does not like to keep it on! It only took me three days to finish.
I also made matching mitts to go with that I think are fantastic!
