Knitted Ear Flap ToqueRequired two 5o gram balls in medium 4 -I used: Scheepjes Voluma De Luxe yarn 74% Acrylic yarn, 13% Mohair, 13%Lurex.

To make ear flap – using single yarn strand and 16 inch (41 cm) number 8 (5.00 mm) circular knitting needles or double pointed number 8 (5.00 mm) needles:

  • cast on 3 stitches Knit one row, Purl one row
  • continue in stocking stitch increasing one stitch on each end of knitted rows until you have 17 stitches
  • end with a purl row and set aside
  • make 4 ear flaps

Use two balls and two strands of yarn:

  • put ear flaps with purl sides together
  • knit one stitch from facing ear flap and one stitch from outer ear flap together creating one stitch – total stitches when done 17
  • this creates an ear flap with two knitted sides – purl next row – leave on holding needle
  • stitch the ear flaps together (can be done at end)
  • do this twice
