Apple Hat-Free Pattern

October 9, 2009

Hi Spud & Chloë Friends,

I have a sweet little fall treat for you today. You can whip up a delicious green or red Apple Hat for your little sweetie in a matter of hours. The green apple is Spud & Chloë Sweater. The red apple is knit out of Blue Sky Dyed Cotton which is always a treat. One thing I want to point out about the Apple Hat is that the top decrease is different than other hats I have done. It makes for a smoother surface with only 3 neat and tidy decrease lines. Plus it is fun to try different decrease techniques. I like this one and I hope you do, too.

Here are a few things you might like to know:
