Crochet Beanie Hat with Earflaps
My Cute Baby in his lavender hat
Crochet Beanie Hat with Earflaps 1
I made a toodler size for him and  it fits perfectly.

This crochet beanie hat with earflaps is perfect for beginners to practice. It only uses Chain, Double Crochet and Slip Stitches. I made this pattern as a base for my future hat projects.  Be creative, use this pattern to make your own owl hat, bear hat or fox hat, etc. I have a lot of ideas in mind. Don’t worry I’ll be sharing it with you in the future.  I stayed up late last night just to finish this pattern. It payed off, I already finished it and I’m sharing it with you guys. Here it is.
