Third Time’s a Charm

Project Three – Aviator Cap

[increases, decreases, ear flaps, buttonhole]

Yes, I agree, I’m a glutton for punishment to choose yet another child’s hat. But I found this cute pattern from Ravelry and thought the difference in stitches and sections would be great practice and the ear flaps a challenge. The more complex style was good to work with and rather quick too. 

Excellent joins between the sections and ear flaps

Less accurate joins not connected to the center

Chin strap chain and button-hole

This was great practice at making something to be worn and not only tackling a technique. Result: very pleased.
