2nd Earflap with light blue
Count to the right 23 sts (that’s including the 12 sts from the 1st earflap). Attach to the 24th st.Repeat rows 1-10 from 1st earflap.
Don’t F/O. Continue to make the edging.

EDGING with light blue
ch 1, turn, sc in each st around; working evenly around each earflap. Remember to mark your round with a stitch marker. Do another round of sc around the entire beanie. Join with a sl st into the 1st sc to give it an even finish.F/O, secure and weave in the ends.

EARS with white; make 2
  Rnd 1: 8hdc in magic ring (8)
  Rnd 2: sc in next st, 2sc in next st around (12)
  Rnd 3-7: hdc in each st around, sl st into 1st st (12)
F/O, secure and weave in the ends.

BRAIDS
Cut 18 pieces of yarn (9 for each earflap) about 30 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. I use 3 strands of each in light blue, white and beige color; you can use just one color or whatever combination you like.

ASSEMBLE
     I recommend pinning the pieces in place before sewing them to make sure you have them in the position you like best before sewing. (Most people like to use the yarn in the end from the finish pieces to sew them in place but I personally like to use matching thread).
     EARS...stuff the ears very lightly so the stuffing won’t show through. Sew the ears between round 5 and 7.
  For the face I will be sharing with you my sketch I made before I started cutting up the felt. I use this sketch to get my parts looking perfectly. Just cut the pieces and trace them into the felt. Follow the template below for the colors you need to use. You can either glue them in place with hot glue or sew them.
     EYES...you will need 2 black buttons with a diameter of 2cm. As you can see in the above template I wrote down where to place them in the face. Follow the guide.

This beanie will go great with the Adventure Time Pillows.
You can purchase these individually or as a combo pack in
any of my shops (Ravelry, Etsy or Craftsy) for a very low price.
