Show and Tell

I'm on a roll, getting my Christmas gifts done.   I think being back in the COLD Michigan weather has inspired me on these four gifts.   What do you think of these ear flap hats?

My nephews were looking for mohawk ear flap hats - I hope they like these!

For the less adventurous on my list, ear flap hats minus the mohawk!

The pattern I used for these is available on Ravelry, called Thorpe.  I kicked it up with my own fair isle designs and worked the ear flaps down to 3 stitches.   I made the Large size, but knitting the base of the hat to 6.5 ".

If you are looking for a quick knit, this is it!  It uses bulky yarn and knits up quick. 
Next post, more of my gift knitting!
