We Live in Scotland and much as it is beautiful it is freezing. Having a crochet hat is mandatory headwear.

I was surprised by the reception these baby crochet hats with earflaps have received. People have just loved to see the wee one all adorned in his crochet outfits. Topped with the ribbed crochet earflap hat.

But I am so surprised at the number of people looking for a crochet hat with earflaps for girls and they choose this one.
