Baby Fiddlehead


This adorable pattern is adapted from a vintage pattern which was available from multiple yarn companies – Bear Brand, Fleisher, Bucilla, and Columbia to name a few! – in the 1930s-1950s. While the basic idea is the same, the pattern has been updated to account for modern knitters and sizing.
