A bunch of us are making gifts for little ones in our lives (or soon to be!) and I’m certainly going to be knitting up this week’s Freebie Friday pattern:
This is the Tiger Stamped Hat by Kate Oates!
It’s so cute! It’s a simple little beanie with a pompom but it has a fun little tiger paw on it. You actually knit the paw print separately, then stitch it on (so no colorwork knowledge needed). It’s finished with a little crocheted brim (there’s also an option for those who don’t crochet).
Kate did hers in Shine Worsted, but there are so many options to choose from – how about Brava in Paprika or Orange and Cream? Or maybe something a little warmer but still soft like Swish Orange and White? You could even change up the colors – there are a ton of great variations on the Ravelry project page!
It’s no surprise that Kate Oates has such an adorable hat – she’s an expert on them! She has two fantastic eBooks currently for sale - Topped for the Year and Math for Hats. Both have wonderful & creative hats that are fun to make – and wear!
I really love the Ruffled Striped Hat, personally.
I think I know of just the little girl who this would be perfect for!

And here’s the freebie pattern again!
Have a great weekend everyone!
