Knitted with ear-flaps
I based this hat on the last ear-flap hat I made, except that the entire hat is in stockinette stitch (no garter band).

  • Step 1

    Ear-flaps:

    Cast on 5 stitches.

    Row 1: *Knit front and back in first stitch, knit middle stitches, knit front and back in last stitch*

    Row 2: Purl all stitches.

    Repeat rows 1-2 until you have 13 stitches on your needle.

    Continue knitting one row, purling one row (stockinette stitch) until the ear-flap is 3-4 inches.

    Knit 2 ear-flaps.

  • Step 2

    With one ear-flap on the needle, cast on 20 stitches using knitted cast-on.

  • Step 3

    Knit on the second ear-flap.

    Cast on 16 stitches.

    Join in the round, being careful not to twist.

  • Step 4

    Continue knitting all the way around until your hat measures 6 inches.

  • Step 5

    Start decreasing.

    Row 1: *Knit 8 stitches, knit 2 together* all around.
    Row 2: Knit all stitches.
    Row 3: *Knit 7 stitches, knit 2 together* all around.
    Row 4: Knit all stitches.
    Row 5: *Knit 6 stitches, knit 2 together* all around.
    Row 6: *Knit 5 stitches, knit 2 together* all around.
    Row 7: *Knit 4 stitches, knit 2 together* all around.
    Row 8: *Knit 3 stitches, knit 2 together* all around.
    Row 9: *Knit 2 stitches, knit 2 together* all around.
    Row 10: *Knit 1 stitch, knit 2 together* all around.
    Row 11: *Knit 2 together* all around.

    With a tapestry needle, thread yarn through remaining stitches, secure yarn, and weave the ends.

  • Step 6

    Optional tails on ear-flaps:

    Cut 9 strings of yarn measuring about 24" each.

    Weave all 9 pieces through the end of one ear-flap. Divide evenly into groups of 3 and braid until 2 inches are left. Tie a knot in the end.

    Repeat on the second ear-flap.

  • Step 7

    Ears:

    With a crochet hook (size I), chain 7 stitches.

    Row 1: skip first stitch, single crochet in remaining stitches (6)
    Row 2: skip first stitch, single crochet 2 stitches, skip next stitch, single crochet in last stitch (4)
    Row 3: skip first stitch, single crochet 1 stitch, skip 1, single crochet in last stitch (2).
    Row 4: Skip first stitch, single crochet in last stitch (1).

    Weave in the end.

    Make 2.

    With a tapestry needle, sew the ears onto the top of the hat.

  • Step 8

    This hat is very similar to the ear-flap video I made, but instead of a garter band and garter ear-flaps, I knitted the entire hat in stockinette stitch.
