I’m sure you’ve heard by now that the mastermind behind the wildly successful Stitch N’ Bitch book series, the brilliant Debbie Stoller, has teamed up with Coats & Clark (aka Red Heart) to produce her own line of yarn! Available at a Joann store near you, Stitch Nation, by Debbie Stoller are 3, “100% Natural, 100% Affordable” yarns made to order for those of us who chant, “Knitting or BUST!”

Thanks to the folks over at Coats I was able to play a bit with a couple of the new yarns which I used to design Puffalump, a baby tam with a crocheted body and knitted, brim & crown. I love this hat and am thrilled to be able to offer the pattern to you today in both my shop and Ravelry, for only $5!

The YarnYAY! 𝘔𝘢𝘳𝘤𝘩 𝘉𝘰𝘹'𝘴 featured shade of 𝘔𝘰𝘯𝘵𝘰𝘺𝘢 𝘔𝘦𝘳𝘪𝘯𝘰 𝘓𝘪𝘨𝘩𝘵 (Desert Jasper), feels right at home with this holiday, so 𝘄𝗲'𝗿𝗲 𝗴𝗶𝘃𝗶𝗻𝗴 𝗮𝘄𝗮𝘆 𝗮 𝗯𝗼𝘅 𝘁𝗼 𝗧𝗪𝗢 𝘄𝗶𝗻𝗻𝗲𝗿𝘀! See below for details.
Side note (that likely no one by me will care about): Giving away hanks on St Patrick's Day, of my Montoya Merino yarn feels appropriate as my dad used to always say that my brother and I were Spirish (Spanish + Irish). Thank you for listening.

Adorable! What a nice way to combine both crocheting and knitting.
Beautiful! Oh, and the hat’s cute too!
Love love love the hat and the little model. lol I crochet but don’t knit. I so wish I did now.
Cute hat Vickie! And SUPER CUTE model!!! what size is Miss Clover wearing? I think she and my Jimmy are about the same size :)….
Thanks! Clo’s wearing the smaller size. She has a big ol’ head (95th percentile!), but the there’s a lot of give in this pattern so babes can wear it for a long time. 🙂
I can not get over how cute Clover is!!! And I would have never made that hat until I saw how cute it looked on her! Now I’ve got a list a mile long of babies I want to make it for!
Cute hat! I love it!
Clover is super cute and looks awesome in this fabulous hat! Love the colours.
