it's blurry b/c my son took the pic with his phone for me ... but i successfully learned how to do earflaps! (from youtube i think it was "knit pink or "verypink"") I have lots of problems with gauge and adapting patterns to what i have in my stash.. so any advice re; that is appreciated. also, if anyone has a good adult size ear flap hat pattern that they can post/share; that might help me out...meanwhile; i'm going to give this to the 4 month old next door and tell him to start growing  Cheesy

Cute! this is my favorite ear flap hat pattern.
If you like using circ's and dpn's you can substitute.

she has variations for ears and other stuff on her blog. I've made more than a dozen of these hats and are fun and fast, easy to make!

You did a great job on your hat. I was curious. Did you do the ear flaps first? Or make the hat and then attach the ear flaps? I am working right now on a hat pattern where you make the hat first and then the flaps, which seems really tough.

With the above links, you make the flaps first and then make the hat. if you have any questions about how to make it, private message me. I'd be happy to help!

thanks for your comments! i've already started an adult sized flap hat --my 19 yo daughter requested it   Grin

i make the flaps first, on double pointed needles, (you'll need 3 needles to knit, 2 to leave the flaps on) i just leave a tail, and then end teh flaps. then after you cast on a bit on circular needles, knit in teh first flap, then cast on more, then knit in teh second flap. you have to be careful, which side is knit and which is perl...on my first try, the hat was garter and the flap was stockinette. now i find if you position teh flap so that teh stockinette side is "inwards" as you knit it onto the circular, it will turn out OK (eg on circular, the stockinette side is inside...)

thanks for the pattern link!
