Child's Happy Hat & Cuffs
Happy hat and cuffs are ideal for a quick project for a little one in your life. Cute and functional at the same time they make a great gift for a little girl or a little boy. The hat is snug fitting and very warm and the cuffs adds crucial insulation around the wrists. The pattern gives instructions to make both the beanie style hat and the cute cuffs. The clever shaping is hidden in the cables and makes the hat an interesting project to make, whilst the cuffs are an easy introduction to cabling.
To make both items you will need just 2 x 50g balls.
