Pattern notes: I used my favorite ear-flap pattern from Repeat Crafter Me.
I made the "child size" hat, but I did add an extra row of double crochet to the bottom. I also worked around the entire hat (ear-flaps included) with one row of single crochet. I think the single crochet round adds a nice finishing touch. (It's very subtle, but I think that it cleans up all of the edges and looks more professional.)
The flower is a super simple one that I whipped together. This is what I did: Chain five. Join. *Chain three. Three Treble stitches. Chain three. Slip stitch around ring.* Make five petals this way.
I'm calling this project a success! I think it's cute and Catherine loves it, so it's a win-win!
