Have you seen these hats made by Christine over @ From an Igloo?
They are super adorable ! I decided to make one for my son but they came out too big so I am going to remake his in the next few days... However they were great "just because" gifts for my nephews!
This pattern was super easy and very customizable. I am thinking about making it into a teddy bear hat next. You can of course make it without any embellishments & she also shows you how to add the braided tassels if you please.
Check it out and let me know if you make something out of it. I always like to know that I am inspiring people.
