FREE PATTERN: Dal/Byul Basic Earflap Hat

This week I thought I'd share my pattern for my Basic Earflap Hat, in Dal/Byul size :)

This size hat is very similar to the Neo Blythe version, except for a few less rows and a smaller hook. But it's generally the same maximum no. of stitches round in the end round, etc :)

Like with all my patterns - I don't mind if you sell hats made using them. The way I see it is you're the one sitting there and making the actual item, and I just provide the instructions. I would however be very grateful for a shout out if you do sell hats on Etsy and places. Also, please don't copy other peoples designs - it's not cool and is upsetting to the designer - I've had it happen with my Punky Monkey hats before and it's not nice to see :(

Okie doke, I hope enjoy the pattern! <3



You Will Need:

  • Crochet Hook (I used 4mm, G)
  • Double Knit Yarn
  • Yarn/Embroidery Needle

Abbreviations
  • Ch - Chain Stitch
  • Sc - Single Crochet
  • Inc (Increase) - 2 Sc in 1 St
  • Dec (Decrease) - 1 Sc over 2 Sts

Gauge
  • 10 DC and 4 rows = 2’’ square approx.

Finished Size
  • With correct gauge, finished hat measures approx. 12’’ around.

Other Info
  • I write my patterns in American terms, so Sc means Single Crochet; Dc means Double Crochet etc. 
  • The number at the end of each round is the number of stitches you should now have.  
  • Please follow the gauge and adjust yarn and hook size if needed. Incorrect gauge will result in hat being a considerably different size to that stated.
