Hi: I'm new to Knitter's Review and I like to do simple knitting. My grandson was born at 28 weeks with a weight of 2 lb 7 oz and is in the NICU. An organization makes knitted caps and one of his first days, his primary nurse's saw a cap that had ear flaps and got it for him. She said she's never seen one with ear flaps and was all excited about it. I made the basic premie cap for him, but would love to find a pattern with the ear flaps. If anyone has one, I would love it if they would share.

Thanks everyone. I'll check everything out that you suggested.

Try this pattern or this one. The second has earflaps - the first is for preemies and comes right over the ears and the second is for heads 10-14 inches. Of course, you could always change the size by using a lighter weight yarn.


If you always do what you always did, you'll always get what you always got.

Hats On! by Charlene Schurch has a nice Danish Earflap Cap on page 72. Check my Flickr account to see my version of Charlene's cap.

How about the Norwegian Sweet Baby hat? It is kind of an earflap hat and would be easy to size down to a smaller size Karen

I've never seen a pattern for a preemie cap with earflaps but I have made regular size caps for all my kids. I bet, if you studied a regular pattern that called for earflaps, you could fudge it pretty easy.

Also, try Google & Ravelry for free patterns in case someone has already done this. Good luck!
