Kids Robot Hat Knitting Pattern- a cozy kid’s beanie adorned with a fun robot motif. Beginner-friendly!

This robot hat features a wide rib brim and a round of robots. The robots are created using a technique called colorwork (or stranded) knitting. Stranded knitting involves using two colors of yarn to create a pattern. The strands that aren’t being used are carried across the back of the work (called “floats”). Since the robot design is simple, this is an ideal pattern for knitters who are new to colorwork.
