The delightful little Bobtail hat has been crocheted using DK yarn (AUS 8 ply) (USA light worsted). The hat is worked in the round, from the top down, using a combination of half treble stitches and cluster stitches, creating a smart textural effect suitable for both baby girls and boys 😊
Designed with comfort in mind, this hat has a soft, snug fit, keeping babies ears warm and cosy.
