Materials:

yarn held double.
You will need:
-DK weight (8-ply) yarn in the following colors:
-Green (MC): around 100 g / 230 yards
-Red (CC): small amount
-White: small amount
-Black: small amount
I normally use Loyal Brand (8 ply 100% wool, 105m /115yds weight 50 g) held double. You can substitute any yarn that gives you gauge.
•Small amount of polyester fibre fill for stuffing eyes
•Crochet hook size 3.0mm
•Sewing yarn needle
•Removable stitch markers or contrasting coloured yarn

Gauge: 3 single crochet stitches x 3 rounds = 1.2 square inch

Notes:
•In this pattern, you will work in the round continuously. You may use a removable stitch marker or a short piece of yarn of contrasting colour to mark the beginning of each round. At the end of each round, you will not join, but begin the next round in the next stitch.
•The stitch counts at the end of each round are given. If you are off by 1 or 2 stitches, do not worry about it.
Skill and abbreviations:

You will need to know how to make:
Chain (ch)
Stitch (st)
Slip stitch (sl st)
Single crochet (sc)
Crochet decrease (dec): sc 2 sts together
* = Repeat stitches from * to end of *
Magic ring or adjustable ring

CONTRAST EDGING (All Sizes):

Join CC at any st along the edging with sl st and work one round of sc around the
edge, going around the earflaps. Fasten off.

TIES (All Sizes):

With CC, loop yarn into approximately 22-inch long loops as shown in the picture.

Cut one side of the loop, so the lengths of yarn are still joined together on the other
side.

 

Using a crochet hook, pull the folded side of the yarn through the centre stitch at
the bottom of the earflap, making a loop. Pull the free ends of the yarn through this loop and pull tight.

Divide yarn in to three parts, plaint or braid to the end, and tie a knot to finish up. One tie is made.

Repeat on the other earflap to make second tie.
