Basic Crocheted Earflap Hat Pattern (Newborn)!

Hi, guys! Here are the written instructions to go along with the video tutorial I recently posted on my YouTube channel. This is not originally my pattern. I have found so many patterns online, but they were always lacking something...like clear instructions! I have taken a few different patterns and adapted them to work to make one easy to use pattern! Here is the YouTube link to the video tutorial: http://youtu.be/knujMOnU2oA Thank you!

Border: Loosely sc or crab stitch evenly all around cap and earflaps. Finish off. Weave in all ends.

Braids or tassels: For each earflap, cut 12 lengths of 24" yarn. Group the yarn together and fold in half. Insert crochet hook from the inside tip of one earflap to outside, hook all braid yarns and pull through halfway. bring the ends of the braid threads through the large loop you just created. Pull tight to create long flowing braid threads with a tidy knot at the tip of the earflap. Group the yarn ends in three groups of 6 strands each, and braid. Knot the end of the braid, and trim the ends to even up. Repeat for other earflap.

Decorating the hat: Add whatever motif, flowers, embellishments that you like! Google is a great place to find lots of motif or appliqué patterns!
