This cute love letter airmail hat knitting pattern has a blue and red border just like an airmail envelope. It’s the perfect Valentine’s Day knit for your baby or toddler!
When my oldest turned 4, he asked for a post office themed birthday party. He was obsessed with the show Postman Pat. The original claymation version, not the animated one. I can’t find anywhere that’s streaming that show right now but if you see it pop up, it’s a great show for little kids. No scary parts or bad guys, just cute mail delivery mishaps and a kitty cat sidekick. He usually has to deliver something ridiculous and then hilarity ensues.
(The related show, Fireman Sam, is not as good, in my opinion, because it has a mischievous child character who causes a fire in pretty much every episode.)
I like an unusual theme so I went with it and turned out to be a super fun party idea, perfect for that age. We used airmail envelopes clipped to some string for a fun mail themed banner and flat rate boxes to hold the party favors. It was really a fun party. Baby V likes to wear the leftover mail carrier outfit and deliver pretend tiny letters to a toy mailbox. It pretty much never gets old.
We did this for a birthday party, but this idea would be SO cute for a Valentine’s Day party for younger kids. Maybe next year when we’re all back to doing everything in person, right?
Anyway since the red and blue diagonal stripe around the edges of airmail envelopes are so iconic, I thought it would be cute idea for a love letter airmail hat knitting pattern. This cute baby hat knitting pattern has instructions and charts for four sizes from newborn to toddler and it’s perfect for Valentine’s Day!
