    Round 2: Ch 1, make 2 hdc in each st around, sl st to join in first st (16)
    Round 3: Ch 1, in first st *make 2 hdc, hdc in next st*, repeat around, sl st to join in first st (24)
    Round 4: Ch 1, in first st *make 2 hdc, hdc in next 2 sts*, repeat around, sl st to join in first st (32)

    Earflap #2: Leave 27 sts unworked across the front of the hat and join in the 28th stitch. Repeat the instructions for Earflap #1, but do not fasten off after the last row; continue working around the hat making 1 sc in each st, including the ends of each Earflap row. *When you get to the last row of the next Earflap: sc in the first st of the row, in next st make [sc, ch 3, sc], sc in the next st* and continue working around the hat. Repeat between * for second Earflap, sl st to join in the first st. Fasten off and weave in all ends.
    Braided Ties: Cut six 24″ strands of yarn. Loop the yarn around a large hook or your finger. Pull the looped end of the strands through the ch-3 space on the earflap. Pass the ends of the strands through the loop and pull to tighten. Braid the strands and knot the end to secure the braid. Trim the ends so they are even. Repeat for second earflap.
    If desired, make and attach a pom-pom to the top of the hat.
