I try to pick a theme for CHristmas gifts for all the little ones in my family. This year it was knitted hats! I think I started sometime in August and got everything finished up just in time for christmas! This was a super easy pattern and a very quick knit!



My adorable model!

Where did you get your pattern?  My son loves his earflap hat, but is fast growing out of it. I have been looking for a pattern so i can make him one for next year!
If you could, would you share your pattern secret Grin

"Heirloom" is  code for "This pattern is so difficult that you would consider death a relief.

I love earflap hats!  Yours really do look better than the "model".  Did you change the pattern to fit a childs head?  Thanks for the pattern link.

I altered the pattern only by needle size and yarn type. I found size 7 and worsted weight worked good up to about 6 months. Size 8 and worsted fits up to 1 - 1 1/2 (depending on your childs head size..my son's head is ENORMOUS so I upped his by using size 9 needles) I just experimented mainly and tried different colors, and textures..it was kinda fun actually. I must confess though..I am in no hurry to make anymore any time soon!!

Happy Knitting!!
