Step 1: Roll Up the Sleeves!
Flatten the sweater out on a large surface. Starting at the bottom, tightly roll up each sleeve. Keep rolling until you get to the shoulder.
Step 2: Roll Up the Main Section
Now, starting at the bottom of the main section of the sweater, roll it up. This will be the brim of the hat, so make the fold as wide as you like. Stop when you are about to roll it into the sleeves.
Step 3: Tuck in the Material
Tuck the rolled up main section into the rolled up sleeves. The sleeves will serve as your earmuffs, so tuck neatly and consider how large to make the earmuffs. Also keep in mind that you want them to be the same size.
Step 4: You Are Done!
If you want, you can sew the hole on the top closed. Otherwise, it doesn't really matter. The extra material along with the hole will just hang in the back. If you want to change the size of your Earmuff Hat, just tuck more of the material into the earmuffs! Now your entire head will remain warm in the cold, rather than having freezing ears! Enjoy! :)
