This design has been created in collaboration with Julie Asselin and is a part of “Up in the minute” mini collection.

Baila hat is a very quick project. The pattern stitch created for this hat looks like stitches are twirling and dancing in the rhythm, making it very intuitive to knit. The hat is seamless and worked in the round from the bottom up. It comes in three sizes- for toddler, child and adult. Bulky yarn makes it a great last minute gift. Knit Baila hat and enjoy winter walks!
