    If you cannot find a suitable pattern if you are an experienced knitter it is possible to adapt a pattern you have or any basic hat pattern.

    To do this. I would knit the hat, then pick up the number of stitches you need to make an 'ear-flap' (from the place on the hat that is just above the ears) and knit downwards decreasing one stitch at each end of every row or maybe every other row. I would try to finish on about five or six stitches depending on the thickness of wool and size of the hat I was knitting.
