This kid’s version of our popular Leif the Lucky hat is knit in Minuet, a child-friendly superwash merino. The double-knit hat is completely reversible with earflaps, Latvian braid trim, and seamless finishing. We think this pattern would pair perfectly with Macon Mittens for an adorable hat and mitts set!
