Oso is a bear who loved brown honey bacon.
Gato is a cat who loved spicy tuna tartare,
Two unlikely friends who like it stirred, not shaken,
Can enjoy each other’s company at any French coffee bar.

This is a top-down hat worked from the top of the crown down to the earflaps. “Ears” are made separately and sewn on afterward.

To Fit Size: 0-6 months, (6-12 months, Child Small, Child Large)
