Cathy developed this pattern after seeing a number of viewers looking for crochet hats that have ear flaps and braids. The picture to the right is a representation of this hat but isn’t the American Doll Size Picture. The hat is much smaller to match the doll.
Keep those young people’s ears warm this winter with a crochet baby hat that has ear flap. The current trend is to have braids at the end of the flaps. Adding braids is up to you. This hat makes a great accessory for a photo prop as well.
Colour changing is up to you. Cathy’s original pattern has 3 colours. You can opt to use one solid colour or even a colour transitioning yarn such as Red Heart Treasure or Eclipse Yarns as well.
