Tiptoes Hat & Wristwarmers Knitting Pattern
This is a straightforward hat with a Cable and Lace pattern, knitted in the round in Double Knit yarn. The hat pattern has three baby and two adult sizes. The wristwarmers come in two adult sizes. The small size would also make a great pair of baby legwarmers!

Note on yarns – this pattern was written for a skinny DK yarn or Sport weight, which is why the main pattern uses 3.75mm needles. If you want to use a plumper DK yarn, such as Morecambe, switch to 4mm needles. It’s such a textured and stretchy pattern that it makes little difference to the overall size.
