This hat isn’t fancy. It’s not particularly fashionable or even very flattering. Its quirky charm lies in its wrap-around flap that keeps the ears and neck of anyone who wears it toasty warm.

The pattern is in five sizes from Preemie up to a generous 2XL, to let you snuggle the ears of anyone you know. The Aran / Heavy Worsted weight yarn makes it a quick knit, too.
