Fun to knit and fun to wear! This clever hat is a hit with the little ones! Traveling cables form the jaunty frog, and stretchy ribs makes sure the hat stays put through all variations of leap-frog. In sizes to fit your favorite herpetologist as well!
This design is suitable for a knitter who can knit, purl, work decreases and simple cables and can work comfortably in the round on both circular and double pointed needles. The pattern is 3 pages long and includes both a chart and written directions for working the frog design. As with all my patterns, it has been professionally tech edited and fully test knit to be clear and free of errors.
