Knitted hats are a must-have for small children during cold weather. When I designed this hat, I remembered that hats tended to slide of little ones’ heads while playing and often they ended up loosing their hats during play and/or ended up with cold ears. Thus, I designed this hat with earflaps and a way to secure the hat under the chin.

Pattern Notes:
The hat is worked from the bottom up, each earflap is worked separately, stitches are held on a spare needle or scrap yarn and then are connected to the base of the hat. The hat is then worked in one piece to the top.
