Front Panel (all sizes)
(The front of the hat is the side where the space between the earflaps is greater.)
With right side and front of hat facing, join yarn with a SC two STS from the 1st earflap and SC across, stopping 1 ST before you reach the 2nd earflap.  *CH 1, turn, SC in each ST across; repeat from * until front panel is just under 1/2 the height of the hat.  Fasten off.

Finishing (trim & buttons)
Join yarn at the center back of hat.  SC evenly around hat, earflaps, and front panel.  When you reach the end of each earflap, CH (as many as you want), turn, SC (or HDC) in 2nd CH from hook and in each CH back to flap.  When you return to the 1st SC, join and fasten off.
If you prefer to have braided earflap ties, omit the long chains, then thread several strands of yarn through the tip of the earflaps and braid them.

Fold up the front panel.  Fasten it to the body of the hat by sewing a button through each top corner. 


Other Suggestions...
  • Other yarns that will work well:  Vanna’s Choice, Red Heart With Love, Lion Brand Cotton, Loops & Threads Impeccable
  • Work the earflaps and/or front panel using a contrasting color.
  • Use colorful or fun-shaped buttons.
  • Leave off the front panel & add dinosaur spikes or a mohawk to the hat.
  • Embellish with a flower, bow, ribbon, pom pom, or appliqué.
