I’ve been knitting these controversial ear-flap hats for years and I felt it was high time to publish my pattern. Since mid-June, the pattern to make your own from Squish bulky weight yarn has been free for download on Ravelry. While I’ve been trying to get these colors just right for a while, Boy Genius mastered them and created some just right semi-solid shades to make your very own out of. These colors are available on any base you like or if you want to make your own hats, you can pick up the kit dyed up on Squish superwash merino bulky that also comes with the free pattern printed in color on quality cover stock. The kit is guaranteed to have enough yarn to make two hats from the pattern, but as long as you don’t get too crazy with your pompoms then you can get three out of each one – I’ve been able to do so repeatedly. Pretty cunning, don’t you think?
