Pattern Details

Aviator hats look so cute on babies! It is an easy pattern, which has instructions for both knitting flat and knitting in the round. The earflaps are button fastening under the chin to keep little heads from wriggling out of it, and tiny toddler hands from pulling it off after two seconds, but if you are knitting for an older child and want the earflaps to hang freely just make two of the left earflap and don't add a button. My patterns are written in standard US/UK terms with clear instructions and plenty of pictures to guide you.
