Lately I have gotten interested in the history of the accessories I make. True or not, here is what I found out about ear flap hats. Ear flap hats called Chillos have been used in the Andean Mountain regions since the pre-Hispanic times where they were used as a protection against the cold weather.The ear flaps were tied under the chin for more warmth. In the late 2000 it became a widely used winter accessory made famous by the popularity of Snowboarding.
The ear flap hat is a must-have winter accessory that can keep you warm and comfortable. The pattern tells you how to make the pom poms without a pom pom kit. The pattern is written in Standard American terms and requires only basic crochet skills. It includes sizes newborn to adult woman. I would be adding the adult male size to this pattern soon. Pattern uses Hooks G ( 4.25mm) for size 6-12 months and Hook H (5mm) for all the other sizes . Hat is worked using Worsted weight/ Aran (Size 4 Medium) yarn.
