Here's an earflap hat I made with my homespun yarn.  I named the yarn "speckled hen."


From my Speckled Hen Yarn:


I had about 10 yards less yarn than the pattern called for, so I had to leave off the single crochet edging the pattern calls for.  I used every last inch of my yarn!  I left the tails of my yarn on the tassles sort of uneven and wild-looking.  I feel like either an elf or Ghenghis Khan when I wear it.  

Here's another less flattering angle that shows the shape a little better:


And this is the pattern I used:
