Wee Bee Hat
This baby hat matches the Wee Bee sweater.
Knit seamlessly in the round from brim to crown. I-cords for securing the hat under baby’s chin are attached when casting on. Ear flaps are shaped with German short rows.
The honeycomb pattern is easy to knit once you’re on the right track and is suitable for advanced or ambitious beginners.
The pattern is written for three colors but there are unlimited possibilities to play: add as many contrasting colors to the honeycomb pattern as you wish. It’s a great way of using up scraps or those cute mini skeins.
