Christmas Knitting - A Hat So NIce I Might Make It Twice

Made for a girl who will be 6 months old at Christmastime

I am lucky to have two little girls to knit for.  I wanted to make something practical, pretty, and that could be worn long after Christmas is over and done.  This little retro cloche Poppy by Justine Turner, available as a free Ravelry download, fit the bill.

The rose and leaves are a separate pattern. This is what the hat looks like undecorated.  Some put a decorative button, some a bow, others a flower.  The rose and leaves I used are also a free pattern.

  You can find the pattern on the Coats & Clark website, here.
