An incredibly adorable hat with earflaps and a peaked crown that adds a bit of whimsy and warmth to every head. Knit in a soft washable wool, you'll never want to take it off! Pattern includes sizes ranging from baby to an adult large. I found 5mm buttons to be the perfect size for the owl eyes - but they can be tricky to find. Check online sites that specialize in materials for making doll clothes.
Skills needed: provisional cast-on, knitting in the round, cables, icord, ability to follow a pattern and chart.
Note: Many thanks to Kate Davies for her owls sweater which introduced me to this wonderful little cable motif and without which there would be no Flappy Hat. Be sure to check out her sweater - it is a great knit!
