Explore your goofy side with this adorable earflap hat, which was designed to showcase the incredible Knit Collage novelty yarn. While this amazing yarn is embellished, it’s fun to add some misfit buttons for extra flare.

This hat is knit from the bottom to the crown starting with the earflaps, which are knit separately and then incorporated into the body of the hat for a seamless design. A single crochet trim and tassels are added afterwards. This hat has two sizes.
