Deer Earflap Beanie

This deer earflap beanie is great for the holiday season. A bit of a back story, awhile back I lived in a small town with a population of about 555 people. One day I made some animal hats and posted it on social media – before I knew it I had orders come in every single day with a waitlist growing bigger than my children’s Christmas wishlist. And to this day, creating custom animal and character hats is still my favorite thing to do. Materials: Hook: H (5.00mm) Medium worsted weight yarn – I use Vanna’s Choice or Impeccable Yarn!
