Ribbed Earflap Hat

Lion Brand® Wool-Ease® Thick & Quick®

GAUGE:

11 sts + 12 rows = 4 in. (10 cm) in K2, p2 Rib. When you match the gauge in a pattern, your project will be the size specified in the pattern and the materials specified in the pattern will be sufficient. The needle or hook size called for in the pattern is based on what the designer used, but it is not unusual for gauge to vary from person to person. If it takes you fewer stitches and rows to make your swatch, try using a smaller size hook or needles; if more stitches and rows, try a larger size hook or needles.

Ribbed Earflap Hat Reviewed by Janet Werner on 2012-12-27 *****
Very warm; easy to make. You can also pick up stitches at the brim edge and knit the ear flaps onto the hat rather than knitting them separately and sewing them on.
