Marnie MacLean Designs: Patterns: Hair Apparent
What this hat lacks in complexity, it more than makes up for in versatility. Fun stripes, snaps or buttons and loads of styling options make this a fun and wearable piece. Based on my field work, I have determined that this hat, when worn with a ponytail or two, is sure to get a smile, so why not make a few in all your favorite colors.
Pattern contains 5 sizes from premie to adult with two stripe patterns and two closure options. The pattern also includes a tutorial for working the braided trim along the bottom of the hat.
