Michelle from Handmade Martini shares a free pattern for a toddler’s winter hat with built in ear warmers. The fleece hat fits snug around the head, with the bottom edge curved down to cover the ears. The design is based on a hat that came with her daughter’s coat this year. After the hat wore out from frequent use, she created a pattern to make a new one. She shares that pattern (fits a size 2T), as well as step-by-step instructions for making it, on her blog. Go there to get the pattern and tutorial.
