This cute holiday hat has a candy cane stripe around the brim and finished off with a bright and festive candy cane bow!
So I have a very serious question for all of you today…
How do you feel about “other” flavored candy canes? You know what I mean? At first it was just the occasional cherry flavored one that I saw popping up in the store, which was annoying but not terrible.
But now, when it gets to be candy cane season I feel like I have to be extra careful reading all the packages. There are fruit punch candy canes and grape candy canes and strawberry candy canes and sour candy canes. I have to hunt to find regular peppermint candy canes.
I even saw PICKLE flavored candy canes last year.
Nope. Nope, nope, nope, nope.
Pickle candy canes are a step TOO FAR.
With the exception of pickle, because that’s just not an option, what’s your favorite new flavor of candy cane? I’m dying to know!
In the meantime, in the spirit of sticking with classic candy canes, I thought this year we might try a candy cane bow hat knitting pattern. Because what’s sweeter at Christmas time than a baby candy cane?
(Nothing. The answer is nothing.)
This easy baby hat knitting pattern has a cute classic candy cane striped band around the brim and it’s finished off with an adorable red and white striped bow. No weird colors or flavors to be found over here.
This easy knitting pattern does require a few rows of fair isle or stranded knitting (knitting with 2 colors of yarn at once) but it’s REALLY easy. I promise, you can do it.
Now, don’t blame me if your baby looks totally delicious in their candy cane bow hat…
