It’ll be 68 and sunny here today — that’s how we roll again/lately — but my interest in earflap hats persists. And I don’t know how I forgot about this one. Quince and Co sent it out in a holiday email yesterday — Kelpie! By Pam Allen. It’s mildly, amusingly elfin in the pretty ivory version, and full-on Christmas elf in the red. And at 3 stitches per inch, you could pull some bulky out of your stash right now and have one whipped up before all of the presents are open!
I might have to knit myself one in a nice subdued charcoal.
Merry Christmas to everyone who celebrates today! And to everyone else: I hope you have a lovely, quiet Wednesday off, full of knitting and good cheer.
Merry Christmas, Karen, and EveryOne!,as she says, “who celebrates today.” Loved this when I saw it yesterday and showed to my visiting adult daughted … we agree, cute, cute, cute !!
Love this! Merry Christmas to you!
Merry Day to everyone! I was thrilled with how my earflap hat turned out for MyGuy – and, luckily, so was he. Bulky yarn with a smaller needle (5mm) gave me a super thick knit that he wanted. Now I want one! And THIS pattern is perfect!
Oh, and I’m also reporting that The Guy LOVED his Dopp-style pouch Christmas present (with the earflap hat inside, of course… ;)
If I didn’t look incredibly stupid in hats, I would definitely make one of these for myself. Anyway, Merry Christmas, Karen. Finding your blog was absolutely one of the good things about this year.
Thank you, Kari, Val and Carolyn!
I went through an earflap hat phase last winter. It coincided with my fair isles phase and the results was time consuming and adorable. This pattern looks simple and cute. I love it. Merry Christmas!
I made two of those earflap hats from Purl Soho while visiting my mom for Christmas! (Both in black.)
The i-cord one or the bulky one?
The bulky one. For two of my sisters. They love it. They didn’t want the pom pom, though.
