Super Pink is a super girly toddler hat for your little diva. Knit in the round and finished with a sweet bow, it will keep your toddler warm and fabulous.

PM and join in the round, being careful not to twist.
Work 6 rounds of K2, P2 ribbing
(Note: This particular hat has 3 rows of striping for each color, but feel free to mix it up if desired)
Work in st st (knit each round) until hat measures 6.5” from CO edge, switching colors for stripes as desired.
Decrease (continue with stripe sequence if desired):
Row 1: K2, K2tog around
Row 2: Knit
Row 3: K1, K2tog around
Row 4: Knit
Row 5: K2tog around
Using tapestry needle, break yarn leaving a long tail. Thread through remaining stitches and pull tightly. Weave in ends.
Instructions for Bow:
Bow is knit in two parts—1 long piece for side loops and tails, and 1 short piece for center band using US8 needles.
CO 6 sts
Knit in st st for 13 inches
CO 6 sts
Knit in st st for 2.5 inches
Assemble bow as shown below:
1. Make a loop and pinch in the middle.
2. Carefully twist the two tails so that the stockinette side is facing out, while still holding it in your hand (this gives the bow a more uniform appearance with RS facing out on both loops and tails).
3. Attach to hat in the middle with a stitch or two to hold it down and free up your hands. Then tack down loops and tails with a stitch or two each (I didn't completely sew down entire bow, just a few well placed stitches to keep it looking three dimensional.
4. Finally place center band around bow and stitch to hat. Lovely!
