Baby and toddler hat with ears - knitting pattern
This little hat was inspired by the baby in the photo, who modelled with kind permission from her parents, who avidly follow a particular film series. When I finished the hat, a friend pronounced it the "Born, I Am!" hat. There are three sizes, to measure 11 (14, 16¼) inches unstretched. By adding in multipes of eleven stitches, you can increase this up to any size that you wish. There are three pages to the pattern, with written instructions and photographs. A soft yarn was used for the pictured hat, you don't need to use the yarn specified as long as you make sure that you check the gauge. The hat is knit flat, so only straight needles are required.

I learned to knit as a child living in both Ireland and England. I love the intricate work of aran garments, but it was only when my first grandchild came along that I began to design for babies and children - for her first child my daughter had wanted a tiny sweater with a particular aran stitch on the front, I couldn't find a pattern so decided to make one up!
