I have a goal to knit my kids their winter hats every year. This year, they got matching hats!
Benjamin loves the pom-pom. It's his "favorite."
Miriam likes to play dress-up, so she adores wearing hats because they make her feel pretty!
This is a great hat. It's so fun to knit, and apparently fun to wear! I would have knit enough hats for the whole family if I thought my husband would wear a hat. :-)
You can knit one too! The Striped Earflap Hat pattern fully explains how to do jogless stripes and how to add the crochet edging to the hat. A garter stitch edging is also included as an alternative option. Details for how to make the ties and pom-pom are also included. The pattern includes instructions for knitting sizes from newborn (14" head) all the way to large adult (24" head) using a DK weight yarn.
