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)

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)
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

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
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

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

hahahaha. This is awesome- I've never seen a child sized mohawk hate before!

Dear Craftster:

Stop hating on Medical Marijuana.
