Toddler Thick & Quick Hat Knitting Pattern- the perfect cold-weather toddler hat, knit using Lion Brand's Mandala Thick & Quick yarn.
Thick & Quick is one of my favorite yarns for knitting winter accessories. It's easy to work with, super-warm and it comes in dozens of colors (like this pretty self-striping skein called Thumbprint). This toddler hat knits up in a few hours. It's knit on circular needles and the crown is shaped on double point knitting needles. It features a ribbed brim and the rest of the hat is knit in the round. The finishing touch is a big, fluffy pom pom.
