One thought on “Forester Hat

  1. I’m stuck on the next round after adding the second ear flap.  There are no instructions for joining the hat in the round.  Turning and knitting 12 stitches doesn’t make sense.  If you turn and then k12, you will be knitting the flap you just added.  Then you start the next round?  This just doesn’t make sense to me.
