Crochet Toddler Earflap Hat Pattern {Free}

When my son was little we always seemed to lose all of his hats. At times I often wondered if the hat even existed in the first place with how frequent and quickly his hats would go missing. When I learned to crochet I mostly made hats because of the genuine need of them. This crochet toddler earflap hat pattern is quick and easy. Works up in less than 2 hours.

Note: This pattern has been revised as of January 2018. There is a better way to make this hat that makes it a lot less blocky in the top. I have left the link to the PDF of the original at the bottom. Happy hooking!
