When helmet head is actually a good thing!

Babe's hat is great, but it doesn't seem to stay on his head. I got it into my brain to put ear flaps on, but they didn't look right. I opted for a chin strap of sorts and it looks a lot like a helmet. His chin sort of morphs into his neck, so I don't know how well it work though! His dad says he looks like a Mongol warrior.

I made a long strap by casting on for the length and then attached it so I can take it off as babe's head grows. I had to steek a buttonhole as I didn't plan ahead very well. I picked up and knitted a tiny flap for the button. Voila - helmet head from the top down!

He really needs a stronger jawline . . . perhaps it will come with age. Now he kinda looks like Gabby who's collar never is on her neck.
