The hat is knit in the round and the neck & cheek warmer is added by picking up sts along the hat that you make special rows for, no counting when it comes to picking up sts!
I designed this pattern because I’m not a fan of putting scarves on my kids when they go outside to play; they get in the way and are too bulky. Wouldn’t want them hanging themselves either :)
I didn’t want to have ties on it, they get caught in the zipper of their coats and kids can button before they can tie.
I also wanted the hat to still have ribbing all the way around to still feel like we are wearing a hat, keeping it snug on our heads.
There is an option to omit the button flap as well.
It can be made in just a few hours! I love it!
Please contact me if you need any assistance with the pattern.
I hope you enjoy it as much as my family does!
