Granny’s Hugs Toddler Hat FREE PATTERN

20170609_112100

This hat will fit a toddler, about the ages 2 1/2 years old to 4 or 5 years old. It would be best to measure the child’s head before setting down to making this hat. It was made according to my daughter’s head size (and the amount of hair she has), which is about 19 inches in circumference. It was also originally intended to be a toddler sized slouchy hat, but with my daughter’s afro it’s more of a beanie (photos of her wearing it are at the end of this written pattern). She is 2 1/2 years old. If you would like to make the hat “slouchier”, simply add a few extra rounds of clusters before making the ribbed cuff. Also, I must note, that the pattern as written takes almost exactly 1 full skein of yarn (170 yards). If you make the hat longer, you will need to buy 2 skeins of yarn.
