The Barchan Earflap Hat is named after the horseshoe-shaped snowdrifts called barchans. Worked from the top down with a provisional cast-on, this ribbed hat has a seamless construction with no short rows or stitches to pick up. The slouchy version of the hat is shown, but the pattern can be easily adapted for a beanie style, with or without earflaps.
I’m in love with the Lana Grossa Fur Pom Pom from The Trendsetter Yarn Group. It attaches easily with a snap which you stitch onto the hat. It’s just so soft and fuzzy and gorgeous!
I used the beautiful worsted wool I bought in Dresden, Germany a few years ago at The Green Wheel. I love having yarn as a souvenir. It was so much fun to relive a little bit of that amazing trip!
