Flap Dash Hat

The Flap Dash hat pattern is now available. All you need is a size H hook and about 100 yards of worsted weight yarn to make one hat. I used Red Heart Multi for the wild one and Caron Rainbow Tones in taupe with red trim.

I call it Flap Dash because it is a very fast hat to make. Work about 14 rounds, add the earflaps and then the border with the ties.

The earflaps start with a shell stitch with two rows worked on top of it. Finish one earflap, crochet across the back of the hat and make the other one. Continue on around in sc for the border or change colors for a contrasting trim. The ties are worked as you do the border round. It's a simple chain stitch that you slip stitch back up.

The pattern includes written instructions for kids through adults as well as a crochet chart of the earflaps (just in case you get stuck).

I've made three of these hats in the last week. They are incredibly fast and easy to make! I blogged about them here:
