Haha. I couldn't think of what it would really be called. It's a combination.
I had some extra yarn so I made it up as I went along. I really like the colors. (blue &brown &white)
But I don't know if I like the ear flaps. Anyways, it's really cozy. I sleep with it on sometimes.









Any suggestions for making it better?

---------------

PATTERN (finally):

Sorry it took so long guys. Anyways, knit this quite a while back and I'm just going to guess at the number of stitches and the such. Sorry if yours turns out crappy. =[
And also this is my first try at a pattern so if you need help on any of it just ask me.

Gauge:
4 sts = 1" (bulky fabric)

Main part of hat:
CO 110 sts. My yarn was bulky so you might want to do double strands throughout the pattern if you plan on using stringy yarn.
Knit 1 row.
Next row: Purl 1, Knit 22, Purl 1, Knit 26, Purl 1, Knit 22, Purl 1
Continue for 25 rows
Next row: Knit all
Continue for 10 rows and BO.

Ear Flaps: (optional)
CO 18 sts. Knit all.
Knit 9 rows. BO.

Finishing:
handsew the ear flaps on the hat and sew the back of the hat. If it doesn't fit and is too tight you might have to knit a little triangle and add that in but it doesn't stand out or anything. Finally, make a pom pom thingy (not sure what they're called.) and attach it to the back. There should be a little hole and you place it on the hole and sew it.

Alright, I believe that's it. If you have any problems with the pattern just let me know.

I dunno if you could make it better, it's really cute already. Once winter rolls around, you're going to love those earflaps! Nicely done.

I think its wonderful- and the ear flaps are my favorite part! I have short hair so my ears always get cold in the winter, so ear flaps would definitely work for me...if only I could knit! Smiley Great job!

I think it's cute! I love it and I only wish that I had it myself. I've been wanting a hat like that with the colors and the earflaps! It looks great on you, good job!

are you planning on writing a pattern for this? i just made an earflap hat and it turns out that the normal ones make my head look deformed. maybe you could just give me a general idea of how you did it?

It's not that hard. The first thing I did was make a miniature as a model &then I converted it to my size.
