Finished Project: Ear flap hat

This winter got cold. Really cold. So cold, it felt like my ears would freeze right off my head! So to prevent that, I crocheted myself this ear-flap hat, as I posted about before.

I used two strands or yarn together, one soft and one sparkly. I’m not sure if the yarns were too thin, but the hat turned out far too large and airy the first try. I then went down one hook size to a N hook, but it was still too big for me. To make it warmer, I lined it with some white sweatshirt material from an old sweatshirt. That seemed to help make it fit better too. Next time, I’d go down even smaller, to an M hook.

Sorry for the poor quality pictures, my camera is out of commission for a while.

Overall, not a bad pattern. I think I need to trim my pom-poms down, they are huge!

UPDATE: I fixed the link. Hat pattern can be found here.
