Veru cute! Did you knit it top down? Or bottom up with earflaps attached at the end? Either way, I am definitely a fan.

I knit it ear flaps first. It was a super easy pattern I can post it if you want it.

You can never change the past. But by the gace of God, you can win the future. So, remember those things which will help you forward, but forget about the things which will only hold you back.

I used this pattern from http://www.diynetwork.com/diy/na_knitting/article/0,2025,DIY_14141_4860628,00.html I changed it up a bit, but I liked the way it turned out.

I didn't have a 16" circular needle and they were out of stock at Joann's so I DPN'd the entire thing. this it :

1 skeinLions brand wool-ease
needles: double-point needles, U.S. size 10.
16" circular, U.S. size 10

Gauge: 3 stitches = 1"

earflap:
Co 7.
Row 1: p.
Row 2: inc in the 1st and last st (9 sts)
Row 3 and every odd row: p.
Row 4: inc in the 1st and last st (11 sts).
Row 6: inc in the 1st and last sts (13 sts)

Work these 13 sts as follows: k even rows and p odd rows until earflap measures 3", ending after a k row. Cut yarn and place on a stitch holder.

Set this aside, and make another one in the same manner.

Body:
Leave 2nd flap on the circular needle and co 20. The easiest way to do this is by turning the work to the back and using the cable co.
Pick up the 1st flap from the stitch holders (be sure that the right side of the flap is facing in the correct direction)
Co the remaining 14.
You should have a total of 60.
Knit in the round until hat measures 6"-7" from the bottom (not including the earflaps).

Crown:
Begin decreases (switch to double-points when stitches become too tight on circular needles):
Row 1: * k4, k2 tog*.
Row 2 and every other even row *k*.
Row 3: * k3, k2 tog*.
Row 5: * k2 ,k2 tog*.
Row 7: * k1,k2 tog*.
Row 9: * k2 tog *.

Finishing:
Cut yarn, leaving a 6" tail, and thread through a yarn needle. Thread through the remaining sts and pull together. Fasten tightly and tie off , leaving the tail if you want to add a pompon or tassel. Weave in ends.
