Echo Lake Snowfall Hat
Earflaps are knit flat, then stitches cast on between the earflaps, joined and finished in the round. The snowflakes are charted and the chart is repeated twice around the hat.
Charts are different for each hat size: Small (Toddler, Young Child), Medium (Large Child, Small Adult) & Large (Medium, Large Adult). Pattern is 10 pages, Print first 4 for written pattern, then print just the 2 pages of charts needed for size being made.
In photo, White is SMALL, Red is MEDIUM.
Note: Charts have been slightly rotated from the hats in photos to adjust earflap placement.
