How many hearts is too many hearts for one hat? That’s a trick question because obviously the answer is: “There’s no such thing as too many hearts!” This simple fair isle hat is taken up a notch with the addition of heart shaped earflaps. Though absolutely adorable they add a double layer of warmth over the ears making them a practical
consideration on these freezing cold winter days. They also go a long way towards upping your cute factor - not that you need the help, you’re cuteness is already off the charts. Hey, if you got it, flaunt it!
