Keep your head stylish and warm with this graphic colorwork earflap hat. Begin at the top of the hat and increase toward the ribbed brim. The scallops are created by knitting into a stitch from four rows below producing a textured stockinette stitch fabric.
These graphic scallops are deceptively simple to knit because you only work with one color at a time. Short row ribbed earflaps can be worn up or down to keep your ears toasty warm. Add a colorful pom pom to complete this wondrous winter hat for your snowy adventures.
