EDGING with yellow
Attach yarn in any stitch and ch1, sc in each st around; working evenly around each earflap. Remember to mark your round with a stitch marker. Join with a sl st in the first sc to give it a nice even finish.
F/O, secure and weave in the ends.

EARS with black; make 2

  Rnd 2: 2sc in each st around (12)
  Rnd 3: sc in next st, 2sc in next st around (18)

  Rnd 12: sc in next st, sc2tog around (12)
 F/O, secure and weave in the ends.

BRAIDS
Cut 18 pieces of yarn (9 for each earflap) about 36 inches long. Fold each bunch in half and push the folded end through an opening in the bottom of each earflap. Pull the unfolded ends through the loop and pull tight. Braid the strands and tie a knot to secure the braid. Complete the second braid the same way.

ASSEMBLE
     All that is left to do is adding the 2 oval buttons just like in the picture and sewing the ears on top of the beanie. There's no need in stuffing the ears just flatten them out.

You can easily turn the beanie into Minnie Mouse. If you need any help at all in making Minnie, don't hesitate to contact me.

  3. @Mommy of four, hi. What I started doing lately with creating new beanies. I would work my rounds as usual but as I finish a round I would measure the diameter. By knowing the diameter then you can multiply that by pi (3.14) you would get the circumference of the beanie. Hope this helps. :)

  4. Thanks so much for this great pattern! In the beanie row 8 finishes with 64 stitches and then 9-14 states to hdc in each stitch around but says there are to be 68. Do I add four stitches somewhere in row 9 to accomodate for this? Thanks!

  9. @Michelle Wyatt,
    At first, I was like what scarf. hahha...
    I'm assuming you mean the one in Ravelry. For the pattern on that you would need to click on the image and then click on view elenipla's Mickey Mouse Beanie with Earflaps. Ask elenipla about that.
