Model is wearing The Ribbed Crochet Hat Pattern with Earflaps 

After I posted a Christmas Themed Photo shoot of him in his crochet Red Santa hat with a huge pom which he wore everywhere, my daughter always asked where did he get his crochet earflap baby hat.

People are most surprised to find out it is a hand crochet baby hat, as the ribbed texture looks extremely fancy and hard to replicate.
 
But Believe me, it is actually a relatively easy crochet baby hat pattern. As long as you know how to crochet AROUND the stitches of the previous round in this case for this baby hat you will need to know how to FRONT post HALF Double crochet.
 
This crochet baby hat is also my MOST asked for in orders, and my go-to favorite crochet hat pattern for a baby

ribbed HDC crochet baby earflap pattern with pom pom
Perfect crochet baby hat with earflaps for a photo shoot prop 
This ribbed crochet hat with ear flaps and huge pom is perfect for 0-3 months.

I first made my grandson this warm cozy ribbed hat with earflaps and a huge pom, when he was just a few weeks old. As you can see in The Grey one pictured above had 1 more row of sc back loops, but this made it just a little too big. 

This Baby crochet hat with earflaps really was a firm favorite throughout the winter. The Baby hat was crocheted using the Half double crochet Stitch, (HDC) and to create the ribbing effect the HDC is worked AROUND the front of the post of the previous round (FPHDC)
