Knitted Newborn Ear Flap Hat (free pattern)


Some time ago I was looking for free patterns on Ravelry (I think it’s a great site to get patterns or get inspired). And I found this stylish Garter Ear Flap Hat by Purl Soho (I love their crafts). I love the style of it and how cosy and soft the garter stitch looks.

During the knitting process  I learned one new thing – it’s short rows. By using them I shaped the ear flaps.Knitted newborn ear flap hat

I followed the pattern to the end and attached tiny tassels at the tops of the hats.

I wanted to bring some colours, so I added handmade ceramic buttons and reused sari silk ribbons.

As my unisex option I added green round handmade ceramic buttons and a green reused silk ribbon:

For the boy’s hat I added navy square handmade ceramic buttons and a navy silk ribbon:

And girl’s hat I decorated with bird shape handmade ceramic buttons and a purple silk ribbon:
