Description:

The lovely and funny cat-hat with the covered ears (earflap) for a girl. A peculiarity of this model is that there’s no need to change (either increase or decrease) the number of stitches in order to form "cat’s ears". You get perky sticking up "cat’s ears" due to different density of the used patterns. Such a stylish and special hat will surely become one of the favorite headwear's of a little fashionable girl.
