A Very Good Hat


Tamara Kelly


The pint sized literary heroine Eloise has inspired a few patterns here on Moogly – the Eloise Baby SweaterGirls Sweater, and Bonnet. And now I have another one for you – with the same palette, stitches, and attitude, but this one is fit for boys and girls, newborns to adults! Eloise once said, “An egg cup makes a very good hat.” I’d like to think she’d like this one even better.

The larger sizes have some slouch – for more or less slouchiness, just add or omit some of the rows that are worked evenly. The pom poms are fun, but completely optional!
