Ear-flap beanie, easy knit e-pattern
Knit an ear-flap hat in your favorite colors. Random striping gives an urban twist to the traditional South American chullo worn by men and boys in the Andes. Knitted on circular needles, the ear-flap hat is a quick and easy project for new and experienced knitters. The knit e-pattern comes in an easy-to-follow worksheet format with a check column to catch mistakes before moving on.
Ear-flap beanies in random stripes make unique, practical gifts for travelers. Buy the downloadable e-pattern from Bandana Heads on Etsy and start making your ear-flap travel hat today.
Yarn suggestions: Aran, 12 ply or chunky weight natural yarns - wool, cotton or bamboo.
