Samara Ruffle Knit Hat
Here is another take on ruffled headband that I designed. Add a topper to a headband and you have a new cute and unusual hat. I used two different colors for the band and the crown for a color-block effect, but by all means feel free to make it in one color. The hat turns out very stretchy, so it fits a wide range of head sizes.
