I picked a pattern and will hopefully cast on later today. Earflap hat
It may end up a little too ambitious for me, but if so I have a back up pattern.
I do have a question about it though. The directions for the earflaps say to cast on 3 and increase until you get to 19. Then to join in next color and work chart. It doesn't say how many times to work it, but I can tell it's 3, but it only shows 6 stitches which leaves me with an extra stitch. Any ideas what I'm supposed to do here? Here's a link to the PDF
pattern if it would help.
