This earflap baby hat was handknit for a neighbor who was having her sixth baby. It is a ultra soft cotton/wool blend that is machine washable too. It was a perfect fit for the newborn!
The yarn was Fibranatura Aspen on size 6 needles and the yarn was from my stash.
This is from a generous free earflap pattern
by Julie Hentz. She provides lots of sizes to choose from too.
I ran into no problems knitting it and the newborn size took less than 3 days to knit up. This is a fantastic gift hat!
