Ever since designing my “Flora and Stella Socks” I have been thinking of designs that use the same fun technique of forming a picture with alternating colors and slip stitches. A heart hat for little girls was one of the ideas that grabbed me and I just had to do it right away! Since not just little girls love hearts, I graded the pattern for sizes from a toddler up to a large adult size. A hat like this needs a special topper. I played around with various ideas but finally decided a little heart loop not only looked perfect, but gave you a way to hang up your hat too!
