Red hat revisited

The first day of my new resolve only to knit Christmas presents from now until they are finished, I knit a hat for Owen. But it was cold outside and his head already outgrew the red hat with the heart that I knit for him what only seemed like a few weeks ago.

Pattern: Earflap Hat from Knitting for Baby by Melanie Falick and Kristin Nicholas.
Yarn: Plymouth Encore bulky

Unfortunately, Owen doesn't seem very fond of this new hat though it looks cute on him the 2 seconds before he pulls it off. The important thing is that it is plenty big and covers his little ears so I expect he will learn to enjoy it once I take him outside!

Super cute hat on a super cute little boy. Is he standing in that picture?!?!?!?

Looks like you might need to tie it on. If you make a good enough knot, it will take him at least a few minutes to get it off. At least you made the earflap strings long!

Maybe if you put the mittens on first, it'll be harder to remove the hat? LOL. What a handsome little boy!

He needs a hunter's plaid jacket to match! Super cute.
