Very very cute! Do post the pattern if you get a chance! Did you knit three different-colored yarns together?

I'll try to post it soon!
No, the yarn was already like that. The colors are really pretty together.

oo come on post a pattern - i am willing to pay as well!

I'm sorry! I should get it this weekend.
I wouldn't make you pay. Haha. The pattern wouldn't be very accurate.

Lovely, lovely hat!
But uh, not to be a jerk, but were you aware that the term eskimo is considered to be racist and derogatory? Yup. It is... Didn't know that until I moved to canada, but yah.

i don't want to hijack this thread because i love this hat! BUT- i just want to say that although canadian iniut peoples may find the exonym offensive, many other circumpolar aboriginals (including alaskan Yupik) continue to identify with the term.

oh yeah natalia...i would totally make this hat if you posted the pattern!

Soo cute! It would be wonderful if you posted a pattern for it! Even a rough-sketch type pattern. Otherwise, my knitting skills are such that I wouldn't know where and how to start! :[

Oh gosh. I'm sorry. I've just been really busy with new knitting projects and I have no idea where I should start with the pattern.  Sad Haha

I bet this pattern could be tweaked and look like her cap. Maybe just narrow the ear flaps, perhaps increase the number of stiches on the circulars and skip the crochet edging (which I do anyway). I've made 3 of these and it's pretty easy. I've only been knitting since late July (self taught, TY) and I can do it. The wedsite has tut. pictures. I'll post the ones I've made soon.


Sizes: large child/small adult (large adult)


Camo Earflap Hat 
1 skein Lorna's Laces Shepherd Bulky
140 yds. 100% superwash wool
small amount of contrasting yarn for trim and pompons
needles: double-point needles, U.S. size 10, 16" circular, U.S. size 10 (or sizes needed to obtain gauge)

Gauge: 3 stitches = 1"

co cast on
inc knit into the front and back of the stitch
k knit
k2 tog knit 2 stitches together as one
p purl
rep repeat the directions between the *
st stitch

Begin with the first 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.

Leave 2nd flap on the circular needle and co 20 (24). 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 (16).
You should have a total of 60 (66).
Place a marker at the end and join, being careful not to twist.
Knit in the round until hat measures 6"-7" from the bottom (not including the earflaps).   
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 *.


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.

Single-crochet around the edge in contrasting yarn for a finished edge. If you wish, also add lengths of braided yarn to the earflaps.
