Wardee’s Crochet Earflap Neckflap Hat Pattern

w-sepia-two-views1I made changes to the sizing and pattern of the hat that got me started (from lionbrand.com). I would like to share my pattern here with anyone who would like it. I’m selfish, too. If I ever get tired of making these, I may not remember what I’ve done five years from now.

I’m currently working with three sizes: Child’s Medium/Adult Small, Adult Medium, and Adult Large. They’re all spelled out separately below.

My children and other children do well with the Child’s Medium/Adult Small. My husband likes the Adult Medium, because it fits snugly and he can fit a rain hat over it. I like the Adult Large because I don’t like a tight-feeling hat. In actuality, any of these hats would work for any of us. But there are subtle sizing differences that make a hat just right. I’ve tried to capture that in these sizes.

This is my first crochet pattern. So if there is anything unclear or you find mistakes, please let me know.

Wardee’s Crochet Earflap-Neckflap Hat

Gauge: 15 sts + 18 rows = 4 in. (10 cm.) square. If it takes you fewer stitches and rows to make a 4 in. [10 cm] square, try using a smaller size hook or needles; if more stitches and rows, try a larger size hook or needles.

Yarn: Worsted weight, 210 yards, single color (sorry… at the time I posted this pattern, I said 600 yards! Ouch!)

Crochet Hook: I-9

Stitch Explanation:

beg = begin(s)(ning)
ch(s) = chain(s)
rep = repeat(s)(ing)
rnd(s) = round(s)
sc = single crochet
sl = slip
st(s) = stitch(es)
sc2tog (sc dec) = Insert hook into st and draw up a loop. Insert hook into next st and draw up a loop. Yarn over, draw through all 3 loops on hook.

Neckflap and Base of Earflaps
Counting from beg of rnd, place st markers in the 10th and 62nd st.
Row 1: Join yarn with sc in 62nd st, sc back to the 10th st (crossing the original beg of rnd) – 44 sts.; leave remaining sts unworked.
Rows 2–4: Ch 1, turn, sc in each sc across.

Finish 1st Earflap
Row 5 (1st Earflap): Ch 1, turn, sc2tog, sc in each sc across – 11 sts.
Rows 6–14: Rep Row 5 – 2 sc (at end of Row 14).
Fasten off, leaving an 18 in. tail.

Finish 2nd Earflap
Row 5 (2nd Earflap): Join yarn in 11th st. from end of neckflap/earflap. Sc in each sc across – 11 sts.
Rows 6: Ch 1, turn, sc2tog, sc in each sc across – 10 sts.
Rows 7-14: Rep Row 6 – 2 sc (at end of Row 14).
Do not fasten off – instead ch 1 (counts as sc in finishing, next)

Finishing
Turn hat to right side. Work sc evenly spaced around Hat and Earflaps; join with a sl st in first sc. Fasten off at bottom of 2nd earlap, leaving an 18 in. tail.
Weave in ends, except 18 in. threads left at bottom of earflaps.

Ties
Cut (16) 36-inch strands of yarn. Separate into 2 sets.
Insert a crochet hook between Rows 12 and 11 of the bottom of an earflap. Use the hook to grap one set of the ties, pulling one end through the hole. Fold in half to even up the ends (so there is an equal length on either side of the earflap). Add the 18 in. thread tail left behind to the bunch. Tie all in a knot at the base of the earflap. Separate the strands into sets of 6, 6 and 5. Braid the sections; tie at the bottom, trimming the ends.
Repeat with the other earflap.

  1. OK I am going to try this again as I think I had an error message the first time. Hughesnet is acting up again. I made the hat and love it. It is just a practice one and now I have the wool yarn and correct needle to make a better one. i posted about it on my blog with a link to yours and copyright info too. Thanks again and blessings.

  2. Like your hats. How to word my question, what is the size in inches of the adult large and adult medium hats, you have picture on the web site. The measurement around the head? and the distance from forehead to crown?

    Thank you. Paula

  3. Thank you, very much for the information.
