Gina knit this super cute fleece-lined earflap hat for her sister as a gift. She didn't use a pattern but just measured her sister's head, figured out what gauge she like with her yarn, and multiplied the gauge per inch by the number of inches around her sisters head was and cast on that amoung. Easy peasy!
She used Tosh DK at a pretty tight gauge for a super warm and cozy fit. Afterwards, she bought some fleece lining material and lined the hat. It turned out SO cute and we are sure her sister will love it!
