This sweet little hat is an adorable accessory for any little one. The seed stitch patterning resembles sheep wool and there are sheep ears on either side of the hat.

The hat is knit in the round from the brim up, starting with 1x1 Rib and moving into Seed Stitch. The ear pieces are worked flat and then sewn together and attached to the hat.

Sizes are included from newborn up through adult. The hat is meant to be worn with 2” of negative ease, so choose the size that measures 2” smaller than the head it is meant to fit
