Repeat for second earflap and then continue to single crochet around entire hat and both ear-flaps.

Finally, use a yarn needle to weave in your loose ends. 

Add the Pom Poms

Make 3 pom poms with your pom maker. Use white yarn.

  1. Wind the yarn around both arches. 
  2. Cut the yarn along the middle gap.
  3. Tie with a piece of scrap yarn. 
  4. Open the arches and remove the pom pom.
  5. Trim any loose ends.

Attach one pom pom to the top of your hat.

Braids for your Patriotic Crochet Beanie Pattern

I made 9″ braids to attach the pom poms to the earflaps. For thinner braids, I used 6 strands of yarn for each braid. If you want thicker braids, just use more strands of yarn.

To attach the pom poms, use a tapestry needle to secure them to one end of each braid. Then, attach the other end of the braids to the earflaps.

Finishing your Patriotic Crochet Beanie Pattern

Weave in all of your ends.
