Pattern Source: original:

This was made with y.o.'s for air flow and hearing on the ear flaps.

It worked up fairly quickly

Skill Level: Easy

EAR FLAPS (make 2)

Strings: (I worked the 1st one using 2 dpns)

co 3 and work 48 rows of k1,p1,k1 rib (8")

Ear Flap:

1. k1,(yo,k1,yo) in next st, k1

2. (ws) AND ALL even rows p

3. k2, (yo,k1,yo) in next st, k2

5. k3, (yo,k1,yo) in in next st, k3

Con't to inc in this manor til there are 23sts, ending with working w.s. row. Cut and secure yarn end and place this piece onto st holder and set aside.

I used circular needle for the 2nd ear flap and repeated the pat. above as for the 1st.

Once you have finished the 2nd flap, leave it onto the circular needle and do not cut yarn.

Brim: (joining rnd)

1.k across the 23sts on the 2nd flap, co 19 (19,23,25) ,k 23sts of flap on holder, co 11 (15,19,21)sts, join, pm. 76 (80,88,92)sts

1. *k6,k2t*

2. AND ALL even rnds K

3. *k5,k2t*

5. *k4,k2t

When you have gotten to rnd 7, change to dpns via 12/12/16sts per needle

con't to dec this way til there are 5sts rem.

Cut yarn approximately 2"-4" long and thread through daring needle. Run yarn through rem sts and slip needle with yarn still attached to it, to the inside of the hat, close opening and secure the end.


co=cast on, k=knit, p=purl, yo=yarn over, st=stitch(es), con't=continue, k2t=knit 2 together, rnd(s)=round(s), pm=place marker, dec=decrease, inc=increase, dpns=double point needles, ws=wrong side

I Hope You Enjoy this Vented Ear Flap Hat and my FREE pattern.
