-Row 1: Magic circle (sc 6 )
-Row 2:  2sc in each st (12)
-Row 3: 1 sc, 2 sc in the next, all around sl st in first stitch.
-Row 4-8: increase in each row between stitches.
-Row 9-12 (longer if needed): sc all around, sl st in first stitch.

 Earflaps: make 2. You'll need several stitch markers to hold accurate stitching.
Turn beanie Right side, fold in half. Place a stitch marker in corners. From the stitch count 10 stitches, place marker in 8th stitch on each side of the corner stitch marker. Take your yarn and loop through 10th stitch. Like your starting around.
 Row 1: From 10th stitch marker, continue to sc to other side. You can take corner stitch out. Chain 1 turn.
