I was recently asked to make 7 hats with matching scarfs for a client who lives in Australia since they are entering their winter as we welcome spring. Out of those 7 hat/scarf combos, 2 hats/scarfs were for girls and the rest were for boys.
I wanted to make this little girls hat/scarf combo pretty and came across this unisex Brick Stitch Hat pattern by BobWilson123, and I thought would look wonderful in cream and different hues of purple. This hat is for a 12 year old girl and I wanted to make her something a little more grown up than the usual whimsical hats I make for children; grown up but girlie and pretty. When it came to making a matching scarf, I used the brick stitch pattern in the same colours and worked in rows instead of rounds (the hat was worked in rounds) and the pattern turned out pretty nice.
