Cobbles Ear Flap Hat Knitting Pattern

Patons Cobbles Ear Flap Hat Knitting Pattern

I’ve used this Patons Cobbles yarn for a few projects so far and I really like it! It’s a super bulky wool blend that’s very soft & warm. I love hats with ear flaps so I decided to make a pattern for one using this yarn and large needles. I kept it simple, so it’s great for beginners. The ear flaps are knitted separately and then attached using a yarn needle. Enjoy!
