The Barchan Earflap Hat is named after the horseshoe-shaped snowdrifts called barchans. Worked from the top down with a provisional cast-on, this ribbed hat has a seamless construction with no short rows or stitches to pick up. The slouchy version of the hat is shown, but the pattern can be easily adapted for a beanie style hat, closer fitting version, with or without earflaps.

220 yard of worsted weight is enough yarn for the slouchy version with earflaps and 9” I cord ties. You will need more for a big fluffy pompom!
