What are you most proud of? I love it when I think of a design, sketch it on a piece of paper with my crayons, figure out how I'm going to make it so that it looks like what I've thought up .. and then it comes out so nice!

What advice would you give someone starting this project? If you've never tried thrumming before, I encourage you to give it a try. I've included a thrumming tutorial in the pattern, with color photographs showing how I thrummed the earflaps. It's ridiculously easy! I promise!

Very nice .. I've never tried 'thrumming' and now I'm so curious to try it out! Thanks for sharing this lovely hat!

Thank you! You'll find that thrumming is easier than it looks.

You're welcome .. I hope thrumming is easy, my fingers not working as well as they used to. Been knitting and crocheting since I was 8 yrs. old.

I love thrummed mittens. Never thought about adding the extra warmth to ear flaps. With the winters we've been having lately, I've got to make some of these!

I live in southern California and thought I had no need for a thrummed hat until I had to go to northern Europe in January for a London friend's funeral. I started out in Amsterdam, then Utrecht, to visit Dutch friends and when it snowed every day, I kept toasty warm in my Thrum Fun hat.
