Eric's Frog Hat Pattern
PLEASE NOTE: while this pattern is free, as in it doesn't cost anything to obtain it, it is nonetheless licensed. Please review the license carefully!
Originally created for Eric, who loves frogs. The original pattern was knit predominantly in 100% alpaca, dk weight yarn, and was knit tightly for a small circumference skull cap.
The pattern linked here should fit large child up to women's medium head sizes as a skull cap. Add 4 rows (four above and four below the frog chart) for a more traditional length hat. Add stitches between each frog repeat (one stitch per repeat is 9 extra stitches or about 4cm added to the circumference).
Frog chart is 12 stitches by 24 rows including border striping. Frog only is 12 stitches by 14 rows.
Update 20090105: This pattern is now available through Ravelry as well as a free download.
