Teo (Mateo) is 8 weeks old now!
He promptly grew out of the baby bonnet I made him, so it was time for a new hat!
Turns out it fits him perfectly, not much room to grow.
The hat pattern is my creation.
I wanted to make earflaps and a button band strap to keep it on him.
Malabrigo worsted merino yarn in Garnet.
Yarn held doubled and knit on a sz. 9 needle.
I turned the ears around though, so the knit side showed
from the back and the white inner ear covered the garter side.
Button is from my vintage button jar collection. Perfect color.
