Lady Butterfly Baby Hat Knitting Pattern

This week I finished my new knitted project and pattern for it. It's a new beautiful hat for my little daughter. Please welcome Lady Butterfly Baby Hat.



I made this hat in a beautiful cerise color using Drops Baby Merino super-wash extra fine merino wool. It's ideal for early spring while the weather is not warm enough for a cotton yarn yet.


The PDF pattern can be downloaded on Etsy OR Craftsy OR Ravelry
The hard copy of it can be purchased on eBay






The hat is fancy and easy to knit. It has textured pattern and beautiful butterfly at the front. The butterfly has cabled body decorated with red glass beads.

This hat is knitted in rounds so it has no seam on the back. My knitting pattern is easy to follow and suitable for beginners. Depending on yarn type either you can make a spring/autumn hat or even a summer one. The PDF pattern is very detailed and it contains written instructions, diagrams for butterfly body and wings and set of pictures which shows step by step decoration process. There are two sizes of butterfly wings for different sizes of hat in the pattern so if you want a big butterfly for a small hat size or a small butterfly for a big size hat. So, you have a choice!
