CO 35 sts, add the first ear flap back onto the circular needle, work across the first ear flap in (k1, p1) ribbing.

CO 43 sts, work across the second ear flap in (k1, p1) ribbing. (144 sts)

Begin working the chart continuing the (k1, p1) ribbing throughout until the marked decreases, then work all k stitches as knit, and p stitches as purl.

Author's Note: The light colors on the chart are purl sts, and the dark colors are k sts. Black sts are decreases worked as k2 tog with stitch to its left. Gray squares are not worked.

Repeat the chart 3 times.

Finishing
When 12 sts remain cut the yarn, leaving a 6" (15.24 cm) tail.

Draw the end of the yarn through all of the stitches twice, and pull tight.

Weave in all ends.

Cut 24" (60.96 cm) lengths of yarn in each color for each of 3 tassels as follows: 4 green strands, and 1 strand each of red, yellow, and off white.

Fold each length of yarn in half and attach to the ends of the ear flaps and to the top of the hat.

Braid loosely to ends and secure with a knot.

Trim ends even.

Think about it. Would you take a Prisoner of Azkaban book, photocopy it, put your name in big red letters on the front cover and try to sell it in your local library? The answer is, obviously, no. Well, selling crafts you have made but not designed would be just as bad!
