Thanks for posting this!  I've been searching for an easy pattern for an ear flap hat and now I've found it!  I'm starting it right now...

That makes me think even lil ole me can do it. What kind of yarn did you use? What gauge did you come up with?
I like the contrasting colors you used.

You know, I made this a whole year ago and I can't even remember. It's baby alpaca and I'm too lazy to gauge anything, I just followed the pattern.

Thanks so much for this pattern! Grin I used it to make this for my best friend's bf for christmas:

Oh and SmartCookie427, you use the DPNS just as regular knitting needles, turning each row like normal. Does that make sense?

Thank you for sharing your wonderful pattern with us. That was very kind of you to do.  Grin It's a terrific hat, I really like it and I'd like to try making a few of them.

To the people who have made this terrific earflap hat, I have a few questions.

Would you happen to remember what gauge you got, when you made it?
I always need a gauge for knitting anything that will fit someone. Because, I'd hate to see my time wasted and find out it didn't fit the recipient.
Any help with the gauge, would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks in advance, to whomever can help me out.  Roll Eyes

Oh, and another thing. I'm wondering how the sizing goes. Approximately what age would the XS fit? Same for the S,M,&L. Because I'd like to make one to fit about a 2 year old, 3 year old, 4 year old, one for myself and, maybe one for hubby too.
Help with all of the sizes would be great.  Cheesy
Thanks a bunch. Because I'd like to make some for gifts so, sizing is very important also.

Another huge THANKS on sharing the pattern. I made my first hat. You can see it here. It was very easy and I was finally able to force myself into using those circular needles Smiley I'll probably end up tweaking it some more, but it was a great, easy pattern to get started.

Wow, it's been a long time since I first posted this, I didn't even remember doing so. This is my staple hat pattern that I've knit probably near 30 hats with. It only takes me about four hours to do it, so why not?
As far as sizing goes, I use the medium size (80 stitches) for myself and the large size for my husband, who has a pretty large head.
I wanted badly to make this pattern for a baby, so I used the extra small pattern with size seven needles and worsted weight yarn and it turned out great. I never worry about gauge since it knits up so quickly. If it doesn't fit, I donate it to charity.
I think I'll start posting some of the other hats I've managed to not give away yet. I'm building up a collection here before Christmas.
