Baby Gnome Hat Knit Pattern

I just wanted to share:

Baby Gnome Hat

With size 8 needles and worsted weight yarn, Cast on 57 stitches.

The hat will be knit in the stockinette stitch (knit one row and then purl the next).

Work 3 inches and then *at the beginning of the next knit row, knit 2 together at the beginning and end of the row.
Knit five rows*
Repeat between *’s until hat measures 6 inches long. Now knit 2 together at the beginning and end of each knit row (every other row). Until one stitch is left on the needle. Cut the yarn long enough to use to sew up back seam.

For the ear flaps:
Measure just two inches from the back seam to find where to pick up eight stitches (just under the natural roll up portion). Knit 10 rows. Knit two together at the beginning and end of next rows until one stitch is left. Grab your size G crochet hook and chain long enough for one side tie, about 12 inches. Turn and single crochet back up to ear flap end and finish.
Repeat for other side.
Let me know if you have any questions.
