Baby Bunny Rabbit Hat Knitting Pattern
In case you didn't already know, I'm pretty obsessed with knitting hats for my little guy! With Easter approaching, I figured a bunny rabbit hat would be perfect. This hat is really easy to knit- it's a garter stitch with a rolled brim and the ears are knitted separately and then sewn on.
