I love to design pieces for children, especially hats. When Cotton Bam Boo Print arrived I was inspired to do this little hat. The hat begins with the solid band, a wide I-cord, and the bow is knit as part of the band made with a buttonhole that the band pulls through. After finishing the band, stitches are picked up for the top of the hat, then again for the brim of the hat. A double-stranded brim counters Cotton Bam Boo’s propensity to drape and gives the brim just a little body.
With so many great color combinations available it’s hard to stop at just one!
Cotton Bam Boo
52% cotton, 48% bamboo viscose
Cotton Bam Boo is a smooth, lustrous sportweight yarn with great stitch definition. The cotton component allows the blend to knit up into a fabric that is soft and breathable. Bamboo adds a soft sheen, and it is naturally antibacterial. The cotton/bamboo blend gives this yarn a wonderful drape.
Available in 23 solid and 6 printed colors.
