Garter Stitch Ear Flap Hat

A pointy elfin hat on babies is nearly too much to handle. I knew I needed to make this hat for a nephew. The pattern is a free one from Purl Soho.

I chose the toddler size for my 10 month old nephew. The yarn was Purl Soho’s pure alpaca and only required one skein.

I didn’t happen to have the right size circular needle so I ended up doing all of it on double-pointed needles and I’m really happy with the result!

Peace and love,

Knit Mittens

A gift for an exchange where you won’t know who will be the final recipient of the gift.

Perhaps they are not perfect, but I gained the confidence to make mittens in the round for the future.

These are stitched up the side, and I still think they are adorable and fun. Had I started earlier, I would have attempted to line the mittens with fleece or flannel.

Check out the pattern here or here.

Peace and love,

Kristan
