Simple newborn hat with ear flaps


Jessica Felton


I designed this little newborn hat in a few days as one of the hats I’ll be donating to the current Save the Children appeal. The pattern that was provided by Woman’s Weekly gave me real trouble so I thought it would be a nice idea if I tried my hand at designing a couple of easier hats for people to make.

Details about the Knit one Save on campaign can be found here:
