Here is my textured earflap hat crochet pattern. Featuring the same stitch pattern as my best selling newsboy cap, this design adds some funky braids and a little contrast trim. Lovely hat for both boths and girls. Instructions for a three layer blossom are included for the girl's version. A wooden button makes a lovely finishing touch for the boys version.
