How to add braids to an earflaps crochet hat

Sharing is caring!

Crochet earflap hats are one of the popular hats that you will find in the most of the design. Adding braids to the beanie will give a new look and spice up your hat. It’s a basic method for some of you that might start out to crochet hat. So let’s see how can we do it in an easy peasy way.

Step1. Cut a pieces of yarn as long as you want your braids tail to be. And folded them in half.

Step2. 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.

Step3. Divide yarn in to three parts, plaint or braid to the end, and tie a knot to finish up. One tie is made. And repeat with the second tie.

 Hooray! Now you got a good looking hat. Be creative by Mixed them with different colours or even adding a pom pom to it.
