Earhart is a twist on the typical aviator hat. Knit out of rich tweed with a textured front flap and oversized buttons, this pattern modernizes this retro hat style. With sizes from baby all the way up to adult large, Earhart can be knit to indulge inner pilots of all ages.

Earhart is worked in the round from the bottom up. The textured front flap and ear flaps are worked flat and attached during the cast on round. The toddler size hat is shown in the colours Chipmunk and Snowshoe. The child size hat is shown in Jacquard and Shoeshoe.
