**repeat earflap on other side so that there are 18 (small child) or 22 (toddler or large child) stitches between them on the front of the hat.

Front flap:
Starting in the corner where the earflap meets the hat on the front side
Row 1: Sl st to start, ch 2, dc across to other flap
Row 2-4: Ch 2, turn, dc across
**do NOT tie off - continue to edging

Edging (continuing from Front flap):
ch 2, hdc around entire rim - I recommend to hdc 2 in the same stitch on corners (the corners of the earflaps and front flap)
Tie off, weave in all ends
Attach buttons

  1. Is it just me or are the counts off for the smaller child size? At the end of round 4 you have 40 stitches. If you do 9 dc, then 2 dc in 10th stitch all the way around you end up with 44 stitches, not 45.

  2. I noticed the same and also was confused on the earflap. Row 2 says 2dc in each stitch, but then row 3 doesn't go with that number of stitches.

  3. I'm not sure what went wrong. I made the pattern for large child as a Christmas present for my5 year old nephew. However, the finished hat doesn't even fit my 3 year old. I used a J hook and my stitch counts were correct at the end of each row.
