Two ways to start this Hat with a Magic Circle or Do Rnd 1:
Here is a Magic Circle with Double Crochet Video, then Continue on to Rnd 2: or Do Rnd 1: Instead of the Magic Circle:
rnd 3. ch 2, counts as the first Dc stitch, *2dc in next st., dc in the next stitch, repeat from *around, join with sl st. -36 sts.
1st ear flap, you can slip stitch onto the side of the hat with your purple yarn, begin the dc stitches, (like to have the seam in the back of the hat, so I do the ear flap on the side of the hat)
2nd flap, fold hat in half and sl st in dc directly across from the last dc from the other ear flap. follow directions below for both ear flaps.
The braid from the center of the ear flap at the bottom, attach two colors of yarn, pink and purple yarn, with a sl st in the center of the bottom of the ear flap and chain 30, and sl st it off and cut yarn.
sc around the edge of the hat with pink yarn.
