Free Pattern: Earflap Hat Revealed!

At the terrific new Red Heart Yarns Site.
Also, you can make it in worsted weight and leave off the pom-poms for a basic earflap hat.

I loved this hat so much, that I made it the very moment I saw it on your blog! I love your designs. Thank you for such a fun hat to make and wear. :)

I saw this hat and loved it! That Pomp-A-Doodle yarn is so cool, and it's neat how you incorporated it into the pattern. But I noticed that the pattern's skill level is "experienced." Can you tell us what part of the pattern makes it a little tougher? Thanks, Viv

Thanks for everyone's comments! Vivian, the hat is a basic hat with the last several rows worked in to the back loop only, which allows the unused loops to be available for the pomp-a-doodle to be worked into. It can be awkward to work into those unused loops. Also, working with pomp-a-doodle takes a little practice since there is a set amount of yarn spacing between poofs, to get it not too tight, but not so loose that they spontaneously unravel. But really, it's not a difficult hat to make with a little patience!

Thank you. That clarifies it. I think I am going to have to try the pattern--that hat looks fun to make and wear!
