Linda's Cuffed Earflap Hat and Brioche Scarf

This earflap hat has a cuff that can be flipped down over the earflaps for extra warmth or length. To attach the earflaps in a no-sew way, after I made the cuff portion, and 1 or two rows of the next color, I knit in the earflaps in the appropriate places by knitting 1 stitch of the flap together with 1 stitch of the existing hat. The scarf is done in Brioche stitch and is fluffy and soft.
