Bohemian Ear Flap Hat
This ear flap hat is an easy crochet pattern, and it works up fast, as Paton's Bohemian is used, and it is a thick yarn. It is very comfortable and warm for those cold winter days.
The ear flap hat has 6 vertical lines that are created by using fpdc stitches. Then after the hat is completed, you can single crochet along those vertical lines to create an even greater effect of the raised stitches.
