This earflap hat is designed with a little one's ever-growing head in mind. Knit with stretchy fingering-weight sock yarn, it is designed to stretch and grow, continuing to fit for many months. The earflaps keep tiny ears warm, while buttons and I-cord braids add style and flair. With Toasty Bean, the earflaps are knit separately first, then joined with other stitches in the round for the body, ending in simple decreases at the top.
Pattern includes helpful photos and instructions including notes on all the techniques described.
7 stitches and 10.5 rows = 1 inch in stockinette stitch
350 yards of Fingering weight
|Girls, Boys, Infant/Baby|

Despite telling my mom years ago that I would never become a knitter, I took up a pair of needles in 2009 and haven’t put them down since! Knitting is an outlet for my creative energy and my desire to always be making things with my hands. My goal as a designer is to create unique knitting patterns; inspired by the beautiful, wild and rugged landscape of the Pacific Northwest--a place I loves to explore and am privileged to call home. I strives to write patterns that are easy to follow and simply enjoyable both to knit and to wear.
Keeping busy by day as a wife, mother of three and homemaker, I love to spend my evenings curled up on the couch with a cup of coffee, knitting, planning and sketching my never-ending design ideas. :)
If you have an questions about any of my patterns, would like to become a test knitter or to set up a trunk show, please feel free to contact me! I’d love to help!
