The baby needed a new winter hat, depsite the fact we have purchased or made a number of warm winter hats in the past few months. The key, you see, is ear flaps. It’s cold here in London, and only one of her many cute winter hats has ear flaps. So I set about to knit her the I Heart Cables hat, available as a free Ravelry download.
This is a fantastic pattern – easy to knit, well designed, fits well. It does have a good amount of stretch, so while it just about fits now (as long as you don’t mind adjusting it when it falls down over the baby’s eyes), I’m pretty sure it will continue to fit for several years to come.
