Start with two simple I-cords, add a connecting cast-on, and soon you are into a bit of lovely double-knitting.
From the I-cord straps to the heart-emblazoned crown, this sweet little hat is knitted entirely in one piece. It is, of course, perfectly reversible, and will keep a little head very warm.
See my instructional DVD, Double Knitting Delight, to help you learn the wonder of double-layered knitting.
The newly updated pdf of this pattern has clickable links (highlighted in turquoise)! These links will take you to relevant YouTube clips and other web pages with a single click.
Susan and I have filmed two supporting YouTube clips to help you get your bonnet started:
