This hat was requested from a friend, he wanted a warm, colorwork hat with ear flaps. The hat begins with a ribbed brim, and then changes to a very simple slipped stitch pattern that is well-suited for even a beginner, but advanced knitters will find it a lot of fun as well.

Knitted in 3 colors of a worsted weight yarn, you can choose from 2 sizes and make it floppy or fitted – with or without the earflaps.

This is an advanced beginner/intermediate pattern. You need to be able to work a simple colorwork pattern, increase and decrease. For the ear flaps you need to be able to pick up stitches.
