Happy Children’s Hat and Cuffs Knitting Kit
Happy hat and cuffs are ideal for a quick project for a little one in your life. Cute and functional at the same time they make a great gift for a little girl or a little boy. The hat is snug fitting and very warm and the cuffs adds crucial insulation around the wrists.
The pattern gives instructions to make both the beanie style hat and the cute cuffs, then it is up to you if you buy the yarn for both or for one or the other. The hat is reversible, on the other side it has a neat rib that looks slightly more masculine than the cable. The clever shaping is hidden in the cables and makes the hat an interesting project to make, whilst the cuffs are an easy introduction to cabling. The hat takes 2 balls of Purl Alpaca Medium and the cuffs take 1 ball only. Together you will need just 2 balls.
