Ear Flap Hat Knitting Pattern

Earflaps:
With 2 strands of yarn, CO 10 stitches. Work in St st for 10 rows.

Work decreases as follows:
Row 1: K1, k2tog, k to last 3 sts, k2tog, k1.
Row 2: P

Repeat last 2 rows until you have 4 sts left, ending after a purl row.

Next row: K2tog twice.
Next row: P last 2 sts tog.

Slip loop to crochet hook, ch 45.
Sew earflaps 2½" from back seam and 1½" from bottom of hat.

You can also knit the earflaps directly on to the hat by picking up the stitches from the inside, using the same measurements as above.

If doing stripes, start the stripe sequence after you have knit about 1½" because this part will curl.

You can put a pom pom on top, I-cord, or even a crocheted flower.
