Finished for Friday - Earflap Hat / Peruvian Hat

I really wanted a hat with earflaps that looked cute but without a pom pom on top. After searching for crochet patterns, I just couldn't find what I wanted. I finally found this pattern and was thrilled! It was exactly what I wanted. 

Ron Weasley Animal Crackers Hat

But when I followed the Ron Weasley Animal Crackers Hat pattern, I made the hat too big and it did not turn out well. Not well at all. It's not the pattern, it's me.

So I went to my old faithful - my very own original Husband Hat Pattern

I used a bulky weight wool blend and an H hook.
I added a different color a couple times for a couple rows to mix it up a bit. Then I added the earflaps and from the first pattern I tried (see above). 

And this is what I ended up with...

I kinda like it. I call it my Wife Hat

And, I made a scarf to go with it.

I used this simple pattern and added a few rows of the lighter color so it matches the Wife Hat. 

Have you finished anything this week?
