Pattern Description:

We go hiking on an almost daily basis, and now that it's so cold out, having a 6 month old, means needing to keep little ears very warm. Also the fact that he's well... Basically bald.... Means that he's in desperate need of a thick hat, that is also VERY soft, so as to not irritate baby skin.
He actually loves it, and keeps it on all the time. The pattern is for everything, including the ear flaps, however the braids, are not included, and I added them on my own, and are pretty self explanatory. I just wanted the flaps to be longer so I could tie it underneath and keep his little cheeks warm.
