I just made this hat in honor of the cool weather finally making an appearance! My ears always get cold so I decided to try my hand at a hat with ear-flaps. What do you think? Is it okay or not? It is my own pattern because I'm not very good at following written out patterns unless they are written by me.  Wink
Make-shift model (a turned over candle with a water bottle on top of that and a basket on the very top)

On the Counter


Hope the pattern works for you!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Ok, Here is the pattern that was promised. I made it sooner than I expected to make it.

                                   Ear-Flap Hat
                                (Basic Hat Shape)
Round 1-   Chain 5 and join into circle
Round 2-   Ch 2 and Half-Double-Crochet (HDC) in middle circle

Round 3-   Ch 2 and HDC in each stitch around (you should have 20 HDCs) join.
Round 4-   Ch 2 and HDC 2 in 1st stitch, 1 in 2nd st. continue this all the way around. Join     (32 sts around)
Round 5-   Ch 2 and HDC 1 in 1st st, 2 in 2nd, 1 in 3rd and so on and so forth (all the way around until you have 48) join
Round 6-   Ch 2 and HDC 1 in 1st, 2nd and 3rd stitches then HDC 2 in forth st. Repeat for whole round. (60 st) join

Round 7-    Ch 2 HDC in each st around (60 st) join
Round 8-18   Ch 1 and HDC 1 in each st around (60 st) dont join keep going around. (That means starting from round 8, HDC around until you have done 10 rounds) TIE OFF



                                      Ear-Flaps
Row 1-      Ch 12 then turn
Row 2-       HDC in each stitch then ch 2 and turn
Row 3-       HDC in each stitch then ch 2 and turn
Row 4-       HDC 1 in 1st four sts then skip one and continue to end of row. Ch 2 and turn
Row 5-      HDC in each stitch except 2nd and 2nd to last (skip those because we are trying to make a triangle type of look) ch 2 and turn
Row 6-        HDC in each st on row, ch 2 and turn continue to skip 2nd and 2nd to last sts until you have only 2 st left. Tie off

Attach ears where you want them. Make sure you have 2 ear-flaps

Between the ear-flaps in the front of the hat, HDC as many as it takes from one ear to the next. Make sure you dont connect the section to the ear-flaps. Do as many as it takes and then add trim, pom-poms or braids or all of them! Admire your good-looking hat!

Love that contrast trim--WAIT, you made the pattern yourself?! Crazy awesome! I am not quite that good yet. Do you use needles or a loom?

Hey thanks everyone! I appreciate the nice comments! I used a crochet hook. I'm not really sure how to use a loom.

Yes, I just looked at a picture and tried my best! I didn't think I could create my own pattern but then I tried to follow a store bought pattern and that was a disaster! If you know how to make a plain circle and increase and decrease then I bet you could do it! Give it a try and you will be surprised! Thanks all for the very nice comments!

Well, I can try to write out the pattern but it will take some time. If you don't mind waiting a while then I'll be glad to try!

Thanks again!
