We’re going to some fun, Easter themed activities this month so my little guy needed a bunny ear hat! This Bunny Hat Knitting Pattern features big ears with cotton lining. The ears are knit separately from the hat and then the cotton lining is sewn on by hand. It’s only takes a few minutes to sew and you can customize the hat any way you’d like!
