Sweet Snowball Earflap Hat

I have been nesting like crazy and whipping up baby hat after baby hat!  One thing I noticed was that when my kids were babies, they always needed more hats and outgrew them super fast. I’m prepared to avoid that this time around. I decided to make a varying size baby hat pattern to share!

Ch1, dc evenly along earflap and rest of hat including other earflap. Fasten off and weave in ends. 
 

Disclaimer: if you chose to attach braids or ties make sure to NEVER leave your baby unattended with the hat and use only as a prop. Ties/and or braids can cause a choking and strangulation hazard. This was my reasoning behind not attaching any form of strand like fasteners.
