Tot Toppers Plaid Hatter Knitting Pattern
This hat is designed to be worn for years, even in the smallest size! The extended ribbing can be folded up more or less, or even be doubled to increase its wearability. It also provides for extra warmth over the ears. Plaid colorwork is stranded in the round and continues through crown decreases. Add a third color into this design by working the rib and pom pom in separate colors, or even work one vertical and one horizontal stripe of the pattern in it.
