I love making the ruffle hats, and wanted to try to knit something similar for boys. I used pom-pom yarn to make this little blue cap.
Once again, I experimented with the pattern and tried something new decreasing at the top. I did not intend the hat to have this open pattern at the crown. I'm not sure if it is practical, but I do think it is cute.
I'll be donating this cap to Marine Corps Kids.
