♥ 15 ♥ Stella polaris ear flap hat

A heavily modified Stella polaris hat for someone who wanted a thick and warm hat with earflaps.

I casted on 3 sts on needles 5 mm with two strands of Lett Lopi.

Worked in garter sts, increasing 2 sts (after the first and before the last sts) every 2nd row till 25 sts.

Cut yarn, and made a second ear flap. Then worked another increase row (=27 sts), casted on 18 sts, joined the other ear flap, worked increase row, casted on 8 sts (= 80 sts all together).

Joined in the round, and worked garter sts for 14 rounds.



Then with two colours but one strand of each, worked the Nordic star chart 5 times (in stead of three in original pattern). Then six rounds with a small pattern, end decreasing 8 sts a round four times (= 48 sts). Then worked top decreases as in original pattern to form the star on top. Hope the receiver will like it!

god morgen. Jeg sitter her og har akkurat lært meg å hekle afrianst-blomst. Når jeg ser på mønsteret ditt er det ikke egentlig likheter mellom de to rosene :-) .. begge minner meg om sånne roser vi pleide å lage med passer og fargelegge da vi var små! .. ha en fin dag ønskes deg fra meg!!
