Keep your auricles stylishly warm with this garter rib beanie worked all in one piece. Strategic increases and decreases create a whorled rib pattern that dips down over the ears creating a subtle earflap. In other words, an earflap hat that doesn’t require three separate pieces and mid-row cast-ons.
