A garter stitch earflap hat, knit flat and then seamed.
Yarn: A fuzzy, solid colored yarn, loosely plied or single bulky weight wool works best. I used Lamb’s Pride Bulky – 15% mohair/85% wool – 125 yds (114 m)/skein to knit the smaller and ended up with 16 yds (14.5 m) left. For the larger size, I used 126 yds (115 m) of recycled sweater wool.
Needles: US 10 ½ (6.5 mm) needles
Gauge: 14.5 st. over 4 in. (10 cm) – just over 3.5 st./in.
Sizes: 4 yr. old to adult small/medium – 21-22 in. (53.2-55.8 cm) head and adult medium/large – 22-23 in. (55.8-58.4 cm) head
