Belated Valentine’s Hat

Yep, yep. As the name I’ve chosen for this hat states, this hat was supposed to be released on Valentine’s Day, but it was late…obviously! It’s a simple knit hat that uses 2 different colors for the heart chart. It’s perfect for beginners and experts alike. No frills, just a cute hat!
