This woolen double layered hat with earflaps is slightly longer in the back so your baby's head is protected from every angle. Fun football design and shape are reminiscent of an old-fashioned football helmet. Choose brown and white for a classic look or honor your favorite team with their colors.
This seamless hat is made of two layers that are knitted separately and then connected at the bottom either using single crochet stitch or blanket stitch. The hat is knitted in the round in stockinette stitch.
