Penguin earflap hat

Who doesn't think penguins are adorable? This warm earflap hat will keep you warm and stylish! Replace the bow with a rose, or leave off the eyelashes and bow for a more masculine penguin. I even attached a fish to the beak of one hat I made, but have no idea how I managed to make a fish! If you have any questions, need clarification, or find a problem with the pattern, please contact me.
