Ruffled & ribbed or ruffled & earflap baby hat?
Has anyone seen a pattern for such a baby/child's hat? In sport weight?

Would it be easier to

A) Knit a regular ribbed edge (or earflap) then stockinette hat, pick up stitches around the top of the ribbing to make the ruffle.

B) Knit a ruffle-edged hat (I think top down would be easier, to do the increases at the end rather than cast on a bazillion stiches and decrease), then pick up stitches from the underside of the ruffle to make a ribbed edge.

I'm just thinking that the ribbing (or flaps) will help keep it on the baby's head since a ruffle edge is usually loose.

I do have Ann Budd's The Knitter's Handy Book of Patterns that I could use to figure out gauge and such, but there wasn't an option for a ruffled edge hat.

I did a search and found this hat with ruffles:

Aren't most earflap hats done with the ear flaps separately?

If so then you can make this hat and then add the ear flaps by picking up and knitting them on or making them separately and sewing them on.

Hope this helps!

I do have that pattern, in a funny coincidence, that my yarn swap pal had sent me! Why didn't I think of using it earlier! LOL I could probably double my Lorna's Laces Shepherd sport to get close to worsted weight!
