Stranded knitting is used to full effect with this charming little Hat. Robot-like characters adorn the main body, and the distinctive crown is created through a combination of cleverly placed stripes and the crochet bind-off method. Hat is worked in the round and bottom up. Available as a single pattern or as part of the Playful Woolly Toppers collection.
