Pocket Scarf and Fingerless Gloves: Free Knitting Pattern

Image
I designed this pocket scarf and fingerless glove knitting pattern set to match my original earflap hat knitting pattern.  The pocket scarf is super long, so that it can wrap around your neck and still reach to hip length - a handy little feature that allows you to keep your fingertips warm when you are not using them to knit...or text...or any other activity that typical gloves won't allow.  Happy Knitting!

Free Knitting Pattern - Earflap Hat

Earflap Hat Knitting Pattern

This hat was one of my first original free knitting pattern designs.  It is knit in single rib stitch with pick up stitches to add the earflaps.  The ties are made from 3 braided i-cords.  The hat is finished with a border and home-made pom-poms on the top and tails.  (Learn how to make a pom-pom with Vickie Howell here).

I haven't made an earflap hat from this knitting pattern in awhile...may have to add one in my Ravelry queue.  I remember it as a fun knit.  I enjoyed experimenting with fun color combinations (see more pics below).  As always, I would love to see your finished products!  I hope you enjoy the free knitting pattern.  Happy Earflap Hat Knitting!
