A warm hat for those cold days.

A warm hat for those cold days

Fall is here and so are the adorable cardigans, warm boots, and cute scarfs that come with it! All of these coming together for the perfect fall outfit during the holidays, but what mini-man ensemble would be complete without a saggy hipster beanie?

Answer? None. In my opinion, hipster clothes were created for children. No one can pull off skinny jeans like a 4 year old.

I have had a hat for my son in my crosshairs for a long time now, waiting for that perfect mixture of  age and temperature. I have also been fiddling with creating a hat pattern that is done in the seed stitch that I love so much. Alas, it is done. Turning out pretty damn cute if I do say so myself!
