Happy Birthday Hat
The hat forms a set with Happy Birthday Mitts. Both worsted weight patterns.
It is a simple pattern to follow, a quick fun knit with beautiful results. A very cute and different border gives the hat a unique look and matching mitts would add even more charm to your outfit. A great wear for spring, summer and early fall, and if you choose the ribbing version - for the winter as well.
The hat comes in three sizes. Size can also be adjusted by going up or down a needle size, or by changing the yarn weight and adjusting the needles accordingly.
The hat can come in several options: plain border with or without scalloped edge, border with embellishment (eg. satin ribbon), folded border with ribbing section underneath to keep hat well in place and protect ears from drafts.
The amount of yarn depends largely on the option you choose, the ribbing one with scalloped edge uses up to 80g.
Level: the hat is knit in the round. The pattern uses basic knit and purl stitches, as well as K5in1 and cluster stitch in the border (detailed photo tutorial included).
Gauge: 20 sts and 27 rows in stockinette with US 2 ½ / 3mm needles = 10cm /4". I knit rather loosely so you may need to go up a needle size (or two) to get the gauge.
