Hat with ear flaps
I decided to make a hat for one of my friends sweet little baby boy. He is almost four months old so I'm way, way late on a gift for him. Of course, I'm impatient and didn't check my gauge; so it would have been to big for him. John quickly took claim to it. I thought I made it long enough, but it didn't quite cover his ears. So I decided to add some ear flaps. I think they are cute - Derek thinks it looks like a football helmet from the 1920s.
Of course, now they all want a hat - complete with ear flaps.
I really think a pom pom would look so cute on top, don't you? But Derek assures me that boys do NOT wear pom poms on top of their hats. I think this time I will listen to him.
