Matching Hearts Hat FREE Knitting Pattern

1. Matching Hearts Hat

This pattern was designed as a Valentine’s Day gift, but I know plenty of girls who’d wear it all fall and winter. If you want your hat to be a little less traditional, explore other color combinations. The heart earflaps are knitted separately, and I love the idea of using the heart pattern alone as an appliqué that can be attached to totes, backpacks and other clothing.

2. Keams

This sweater is sized from newborn up to 6 years old. The buttons are the key piece for the sweater, since they have the power to make it casual or perhaps a little fancier. The yarn is a chunky weight, so this little top comes together in just a few hours.

Accessories are important because they’re worn daily, plus they keep kiddos snug and warm. The pattern is sized to fit girls up to age 10, but you could easily adapt the pattern for a larger scarf. You could even make a matching adult version for yourself!

Gals will love this dress because it’s two outfits in one — the A-line style dress is reversible! One day, she can wear the cable in the front, and the next day, she can wear the simple buttoned collar in the front.

The super-bulky yarn makes this accessory cozy and quick. The instructions include sizes for all ages, including adults. You’ll need some shaping skills to knit the heart, of course, so practice those k2togs and SSKs if you’re new to decreases.
