This cosy colour block hat and booties set is sized from 6-24 months, so win­ter ar­rivals won’t be get­ting chilly toes any­time soon.

In­struc­tions

The hat is worked in rows and the first and last row are seamed to­gether by ss, then one end is closed to form the hat. Each bootie is made in two pieces (sole and cuff/body) and seamed to­gether by ss. When chang­ing colour, do so on last yrh of the previous st. Turn­ing ch at the start of each row does not count as a st. The pat­tern is writ­ten for the small­est size, with in­struc­tions for the other sizes shown in brack­ets in in­creas­ing or­der, i.e. XS (S, M, L).
