Last winter I knitted a Pink Rabbit Hat for my grand-daughter. I was asked to design and knit another Pink Rabbit Hat that had ear flaps. I researched rabbit faces and cartoon rabbit faces on google images.  The new hat is similar in some ways to the original rabbit hat.

I re-designed the nose so it had 2 clear sections

I designed the rabbit ears to be more shaped and shorter so they don’t drupe over.
