I promised my sister that I`d make my nephew a new hat, and thought what better way to perfect my mohawking techniques. This is my own pattern (which is below). But I got the idea from knit head. Sorry about the pics, it was getting to be the sleepy hour.









I used Vanna's choice, but any worsted weight will do

4mm circ needle (16 inch)
1 set dpn 4mm
crochet hook (4mm)

Abbr.
kfb-knit front back (inc)
k2tog-knit 2 together (dec)

Earflaps (make 2):
CO 3st
1. k1, kfb, k1 (4)
2.purl (and every even row)
3. k1, kfb, kfb, k1 (6)
4.purl
5. k1, kfb, k until 2 st left, kfb, k1
con't rows 4 and 5 until you have 20 stitches
switch to stockinette for another inch
cut yarn, leave on dpn

Hat:
with circ needle
start knitting with circ off one of the dpn, co 16, pick up and  knit remaining earflap , co 16
join in round and knit until 3-4in

Decrease rows:
place marker at beginning of round
1. *k6 k2tog* rep
2-3. k
4. *k5, k2tog* rep
5-6. k
7. *k4, k2tog* rep
8. k
9. *k3, k2tog* rep
10.k
11. *k2, k2tog* rep
12. k
13. *k1, k2tog* rep
14. k
15. *K2tog* rep

cut yarn, run yarn thru remaining stitched pull tight, weave in ends

Back of Neck:
Pick up and knit 16 stitch at the back of hat
continue stockinette for 1 inch
Cast Off
sew earflaps to each side of the neck cover

for the braids, you can make an i-cord or braid using 6 strands of yarn. and attach to the bottom of flats

mohawk:
cut 6 inch strands of untreaded/felting wool, with crochet hook use, fold strand in half, and bring thru the top of the hat, yo and pull thru (sort of like a sc)

felt the mohawk


I really hope this makes sense...if you have a question, I`ll try my best to clarify
