Pattern Description:

Aviator hats look so cute on babies!
It is an easy pattern, which is knit in the round - so no seaming involved.
The earflaps are button fastening under the chin to keep little heads from wriggling out of it, and tiny toddler hands from pulling it off after two seconds, but if you are knitting for an older child and want the earflaps to hang freely just make two of the left earflap and don't add a button - simple!

My patterns are written in standard american and UK terms with clear instructions and plenty of pictures to guide you.

Good Funky Hat, easily made!  November 29, 2012

This was the first time I ever used circular needles (or DPNs for that matter!) and this pattern has converted me. Really easy to follow, even for a slow knitter like me it only took about 3 nights to make (and I am a slow knitter!)
Using the Cashmerino Aaron this hat is super soft and going to be super warm for my little one! A real must for this time of year!
