Not much knitting of late, I admit.

But now I'm ready to start the next project, which is a birthday present for a friend who had his birthday quite a while ago.

He wants a hat with earflaps, probably with some kind of Scandinavian motif on it, something 'a bit different'. I've got a couple of ideas, just wondered if anyone else had any tried and tested patterns?

Hello, as a fellow Deptford dweller and knitter I drop in on your blog now and then. I have knitted this a fair few times and it works well I think:

especially if you use another contract for the middle pattern like this:

Hope that helps!

Thanks Shell, in fact this was the very pattern I had in mind! I'm about a third of the way through. Pop back in a couple of weeks, you should be able to see the finished article.
