Exploration in Ear Flaps

A request for an earflap hat (Thanks Gina!) got me started designing my own version. After looking at a number of patterns online, I created patterns using reversible cables to keep the hat looking nice inside and out.

A Week in Hats

I’ve been having fun with hats for the last week and here are most of them. I have a bunch of Lionbrad Woolease kicking around, so I’ve been enjoying making up color combinations for striped hats. I also had some Fisherman’s tweed, so I made a nice cable cap.
