Last year I bought an assortment of neon yarn and made mittens for my nieces and nephews. I ended up with a pile of brightly coloured scrap yarn, so when I was looking for something to knit for a birthday gift, they jumped out of my collection at me.
I love striped hats in general, but Rainbow Marley is a particular favourite for children; the curly-cues on the top make this hat in my opinion.
