V is Still for Valentine Hat Knitting Pattern - HFS Original - Downloadable PDF


V is Still for Valentine is a nod to one of my first published patterns, the V is for Valentine hat. Written in five sizes with lots of options for making this hat your own. Perfect for gift knitting, too!

The simple colourwork makes this hat appropriate for knitters ready to tackle their first colourwork but still fun for more experienced knitters.

The hat is knit from the bottom up in one piece and is seamless. It can be worn with an optional pom pom or without.

This project is also a perfect stash buster or a way to use mini skeins. The two smallest sizes can be made with just 2 mini skeins each!
