The number one item every child needs in their winter wardrobe is a hat, and the best sort of hat is the kind that does its job well. A basic hat will match most items in even the most eclectic fashionista closet. For extra flare, add a bit of fair isle, or, for a sporty edge, just add a few stripes in the child’s favorite color. With 3 different patterns to choose from for the brim, you can get creative while still keeping things simple and easy to knit.
