I designed this chunky crochet earflap hat to keep my little one’s head warm for a cold Colorado winter. I made it super thick so that it would be extra warm and toasty on those chilly days. It is is made with very, very soft acrylic yarn; I wanted to be sure it could be tossed in the washing machine after the boy inevitably got his hat all grubby playing in the snow.

Now my earflap hats and the DIY crochet pattern are available in my Etsy store. Drop by and take a peek!

This do-it-yourself (DIY) pattern shows you how to create your own crochet earflap hats in adult, child, baby, and infant sizes. Make one for everybody in the family!

This is an easy to intermediate level pattern, which requires both crochet in the round and flat crochet. I love this crochet earflap hat pattern because it works up very quickly using multiple strands of worsted weight yarn at the same time. Plus, the multiple strand crocheting makes the hat very thick, chunky, and warm.

If you use the extra-soft acrylic yarn called for in the crochet pattern, the earflap hat can be machine washed separately on hand-wash cycle in cold water. Lay flat to dry.

The Yarn

My pattern calls for Caron Simply Soft Acrylic Yarn in any colors you choose. But, if you don’t want to use Simply Soft, any worsted weight yarn should work for this pattern (just check your gauge).

I always pick Caron Simply Soft Yarn any time a very soft yarn is practical, so that is what I Chunky crochet pattern by PurlsAndPixelsselected when writing this pattern. I love this yarn because it is acrylic (no allergies), machine washable, and oh so very soft.

Do remember: Velcro will snag anything you make with Simply Soft Yarn, so make sure to keep them separate. I learned this the hard way when one of the baby’s bibs got stuck to a blanket made of this yarn and snagged it.

If you want to know more about this particular yarn, I have reviewed it on Amazon. You can get a lot of the hard-to-find colors of Caron Simply Soft Yarn on Amazon, so I get a lot of my yarn from there. Caron Simply Soft Yarn on Amazon in lots of colors.

You can use any color of Caron Simply Soft Yarn in this pattern. Or get creative and pick different colors to hold together.
