Reversible Parallelogram Hat with Earflaps

Double Stranded Earflap Hat in Parallelogram Knit Pattern
~Knit flat

I wanted a hat to go with the Parallelogram Scarf but did not want to try to convert the pattern for knitting in the round.  Also, I wanted earflaps and wanted them along with the rows around the bottom to be in garter stitch to coordinate with the edges of the scarf so I worked up this pattern.

The scarf took several days to knit….this hat only a day.

 

Here is the pattern

Size 13 (9 mm) straight knitting needles
One skein of worsted weight yarn in the same color separated into 2 equal size balls
Crochet Hook or yarn needle to weave in ends

Gauge: 3 stitches per inch

*NOTE: This entire pattern is knit using 2 strands of yarn
This hat is knitted flat and then seamed to finish*

Begin with Earflaps
Cast on 3
Knit 2 rows
Row 3 – increase 1 stitch at the end and beginning of row (5)
Row 4-Knit all
Odd rows- repeat row 3, adding two stitches each of these rows
Even rows- repeat row 4 until there are 19 stitches

Cut yarn leaving a 12-18″ tail and move stitches to a holder or an extra needle

Make second earflap using pattern above

Hat
Cast on 2 (this will be for the back of the hat which is divided but will be seamed when you are finished)
Knit across first earflap
Cast on 8 (this will be the front of your hat)
Knit across second ear flap
Cast on 2 stitches (to finish back of hat)
You should have 50 stitches total

Knit in garter stitch for 6 rows
Continue knitting using this pattern stitch until patterned area is approx 6″ long
