A favourite with mums and dads, this hat keeps little ears cosy without slipping down over eyes.
For less experienced knitters there are detailed instructions for the short rows used to shape the ear flaps; and instructions for working straight or in the round.
The pattern is for a plain hat or one with simple stripes. The more adventurous can add their own stripe or fair-isle designs for a unique creation!
One skein of Baby Cashmerino is all that is needed for the plain hat and oddments can be used for stripes.
