Do you know someone having a baby during the cold months? These adorable hats are doubly warm and use a stockinette stitch throughout. Instructions are given for a Turkish Cast-on used to start the ears and the earflaps. Hobby Lobby's "I Love This Yarn" 100% acrylic medium weight (#4) was used for the two little hats. This pattern is the same as the "Newborn Animal Earflap Hats" but you can see how it will fit an actual newborn! BASIC SKILLS NECESSARY knit increases and decreases GAUGE Size 10 in stockinette st, double-stranded: 3 sts and 4.75 rows = 1 inch SIZING / FINISHED MEASUREMENTS Circumference 13.5 inches Height 5.5 inches

I have been knitting for 60 years and since the grandchildren arrived have been knitting daily. I decided I wanted to create easy predominantly seamless knitting projects because I love knitting in the round, and more important I hate to sew pieces together! I have had many wonderful comments from knitters who have created items from my patterns and like their finished projects, but should you come across a flaw or something that doesn't seem quite right in the instructions, I hope you will contact me! Contact me at with any of your questions or concerns. You are free to sell your finished items, but please give me credit for the pattern. Thank you and happy knitting!
