Flat Knit Baby Bunny Hat- beginner-friendly and it makes a great gift!

Flat Knit Baby Bunny Hat by blogger Gina Michele

I can’t resist hats with animal ears- they’re just so cute! This bunny hat is ideal for beginners since it is knit on single point needles using basic rib and garter stitches. The ears are knit separately and then sewn on. This is a fast & fun project that will keep your little one toasty when the cool weather arrives.
