Crochet Baby Hat With Earflaps for Beginners

 crochet hat for toddlers
I made a crochet baby hat with earflaps for my baby. I was very happy with the finished project. It looks so cute on him. Can’t wait to make another one.
He refused to wear them at first, I had to grab his hands while carrying him. We were running around while I make funny noises. It really worked out. He was smiling and we were laughing out loud too. Thanks to my hubby’s support, we were able to take a picture of him. 



 He won’t look at the camera. Maybe he’s just too shy…
Oh! Look at that face he’s really angry now  🙂
