Ribster Hats - Baby, Toddler & Child Sizes

 I have been knitting ribbed baby hats for around 6 years now! 

Because they are so stretchy, they are very practical......... And they seem to fit for ages!

I have now added new sizes, for toddlers and young children too. 

Ribster Hats ~ for Babies, Toddlers, & Young Children


Knit them as a beanie style hat - or add more rows if you prefer a turned-up brim.

And .... add a pom-pom if you like. 

These hats look great knitted in a plain self-coloured yarn, or with a variegated yarn. You choose !
