Super cute. But try as I might, I could NOT find a pattern that was similar. Ugh. So I made one up.
I started with one baby hat pattern that didn't have ear flaps and one that did, but neither were close. I took the stitch count from one and cast on for the ear flaps. I must have started this dang hat four times before I decided things had to change. Now I can't even remember what I did, but I know I started at the bottom of the ear flaps and went from there.
I hated it. It look me weeks to bring myself to sew in the ends because I was so disappointed.
Enter the Baby Earflap Hat. I had just finished knitting it for a friend's baby shower and I loved it.
Simple stockinette stitch hat with ear flaps, braided tassels, and a pom. Easy to knit. Clear, concise pattern. SO MUCH BETTER.
Back to the stash for more baby girl-colored yarn. I came up with cream and purple (good thing her parents are Husky fans).
So much better. So. Much. BETTER.
And it fits!!
I ended up sending them both, with my apologies for the pink one and hopes it would fit at some point.
Lesson learned - always follow patterns for baby stuff.
