This is a simple, knit in the round hat. Knit in a soft Alpaca yarn, it folds double over your ears. Enjoy!
I forgot to take a picture before taking it into Ewe Knit Kits. Until I can get over there to snap a shot, picture Marlo Thomas as That Girl in a really cute warm cuddly hat saying "Oh Donald". You'll look just like that!
Updated with pictures! There's a bit of ribbing hiding under the brim to keep it close to your head and ears.
