Recommended Posts

Hat with Shells and Earflaps

3 colors WW yarn (A,B,C) i used Caron Simply Soft brights

G hook

 

In A, ch multiple of 8 (88 fit me but i have a big head) join

1-2) sc around

3-4) in B sc

5) in C sc,

6) same as 5, join cut

7) in A ch 3 in sc, 6 dc in same st, sk 3, sl, sk3, (7 dc in sc, sk 3, sl, sk3) repeat around, join and cut

8-12) repeat 7 alternating colors (B,C,A,B, C)

13) in A, ch 1 in middle sc of shell, sc in same sc, sc, 2 hdc, dc, 2 hdc, (3 sc, 2 hdc, dc, 2 hdc) around, sc, join and cut

In the next rnds the last repeat will not be perfect, just approximate

Earflaps

Put hat on head and mark where earflaps should go, scraps work well for temporary markers

1) In C, ch 1 in beginning ch, sc in same ch, sc in next 13 ch

2) ch 1, turn, sc across

3) switch to B, sc across

4) ch 1, turn, sc across

5-8) repeat 3-4, with A, then C

9) switch to B, sc, sc-dec, sc across until 3 sc left, sc-dec, sc

10) still in B repeat 9

11) switch to A, repeat 9

12) still in A, repeat 9, join and cut

 

Run in any left over ends, sc in C around base of hat

For braids at ends of earflaps: cut 2 pieces of each color about twice as long as desired length of braid, fold each color in half separately, use hook to bring loop of each bundle through middle three sc on earflap, the ends should then be tucked through the loop of their respective colors, braid to desired length and tie off
