HandmadeQT: Adventure Time Beanie
Vanna White's Mustard Med. Worsted Yarn
Red Heart with Love White & Black
This is your basic slouchy beanie with EarFlaps.
Can be done with HDC or DC. (hdc, looks better)
Row 1: Magic Circle 8.
Row 2: increase in stitch, sl st.
Row 3: Chain 1 (for hdc, Chain 2 for dc) *1 in this stitch, double in the next* sl st.
Row 4: Chain 1 or 2, * 1 in the next 2 stitches, double in the next * sl st
Row 5: Chain 1 or 2, * 1 in the next 3 stitches, double in the next* sl st.
Row 6: Chain 1 or 2, * 1 in the next 4 stitches, double in the next* sl st.
Row 7 or 8: Optional, if you need the hat to slouch more, add next to row. Add 5 stitches for Row 7, Add 6 stitches for 8, before the double on each row.
Row 9-15 (if need less single rows): 1 stitch in each row. Last row, sc all around, fasten off and weave in tail.
I have a simple of doing ear flaps, without messing up, some may think its a little complicated but super simple.
Fold you beanie in half. Like shown in picture, where you want to place face. Then place stitch markers (2) in the middle of the stitch in both left and right sides. That will be the middle of your Ear flaps. As long as you have equal number of stitches on both sides, you flaps with be even.
Depending on how long you want them.
Sc crochet first row, sl st, chain 1 turn. This gives you length
to decrease til end, sctog on the beginning of the chain 1, and at the end of your row. Fasten off.
