My little granddaughter requested this hat after I made red dog hats for her sister and cousin. It took awhile to come up with a pattern that I felt looked right and girly too. It's warm using double yarn, so it is a great winter hat. It has some good stretch to it (circumference) so it is likely to fit for a couple of winter seasons. The adult version I just created to be funny, but it too is included in this pattern. I shortened the earflap for the adult version, but you can make earflaps any length you desire for either the child or adult hat. BASIC SKILLS NECESSARY Stockinette Stitch Turkish Cast-On for the earflaps (instructions included in pattern) increasing and decreasing stitches GAUGE Using stockinette stitch: 3.25 sts and 5 rows = 1 inch SIZING / FINISHED MEASUREMENTS Circumference - child - 17 inches, adult - 20 inches Height from bottom of earflaps to top of folded over white cap - child - 5 inches, adult - only 4.25 inches (shorter)

I have been knitting for 60 years and since the grandchildren arrived have been knitting daily. I decided I wanted to create easy predominantly seamless knitting projects because I love knitting in the round, and more important I hate to sew pieces together! I have had many wonderful comments from knitters who have created items from my patterns and like their finished projects, but should you come across a flaw or something that doesn't seem quite right in the instructions, I hope you will contact me! Contact me at with any of your questions or concerns. You are free to sell your finished items, but please give me credit for the pattern. Thank you and happy knitting!
