Fantastic idea!!  This will certainly be a big hit!  I've never seen a hat like that before...it will definitely stand out!  So fun!  Great job!

That is fantastic!  I can't crochet a hat to save my life, but I will knit one.  So awesome!

You should totally make one!  It's really easy (there are tutorials on youtube that show you how to make beanies) and cheap... all together this cost less than $7, the most expensive part of it being the wool yarn for the hawk part... it takes a bit of time to make, especially if you're new to knitting or crocheting.  This one took me 2 days to make.  One day to make the hat, and one day to attach the "hair" and felt it.

Haha, I think you talked me into it! Ive been crocheting for quite awhile now, so I've got that step down. It'll just be conquering the felting! But your directions were terrific so Im sure I'll be able to get it with only some moderate grumbling.  Grin

Do you have a link to the pattern you used? I love the ear flaps and straps! Smiley

I didn't use a pattern, but I will try to explain what I did what I did:

1. I started out with a magic circle with 6 sc.
2. 2sc in each stitch (total = 12 sc)
3. 1 sc in first stitch, 2 sc in the next, repeat (18 sc)
4. 2 sc in first stitch, 1 sc in the next 2 stitches, repeat (24 sc)
5. 1 sc in first 3 stitches, 2 sc in the next stitch, repeat (30 sc)
6. 2 sc in first stitch, 1 sc in the next 4 stitches (36 sc)
7. 1 sc in first 5 stitches, 2 sc in the next stitch, repeat (42 sc)
8. 2 sc in first stitch, 1 sc in the next 6 stitches (48 sc)  -- if making for a child, skip to step 15
9. 1 sc in the first 7 stitches, 2 sc in the next stitch, repeat (54 sc)
10. 2 sc in the first stitch, 1 sc in the next 8 stitches, repeat (60 sc)
11. 1 sc in the first 9 stitches, 2 sc in the next stitch, repeat (66 sc) -- if making for a woman, skip to step 15
12. 2 sc in the first stitch, 1 sc in the next 10 stitches, repeat (72 sc)
13. 1 sc in the first 11 stitches, 2 sc in the next stitch, repeat (78 sc)
14. 2 sc in the first stitch, 1 sc in the next 12 stitches, repeat (84 sc) -- Men's size
15. 1 sc in every stitch, repeat until hat is long enough to go down to the person's eyebrows.

After the hat is long enough to cover their head, it's time to make the ear flaps. 
The easy way to do it is to cut the yarn here with a tail to weave in later then start at one earflap 1/6 of the total stitches from the center of the hat (you can kind of see the hat broken into 6ths from the top of the hat, if not then totalNumberOfStitch es/6 = x, find the front-center, count x stitches out and start from there.
What I did (because I for some reason don't like tails) I left the last stitch that I made hanging, left enough slack of yarn to go to where I was starting the earflap and started crocheting, when I got back to the stitch I left hanging, I sc in that stitch and continued on.

To make the earflaps I no longer crochet around, but back and forth obviously.  To make the earflaps I SC in every stitch for 4/6ths of the hat in the first 2 rows.
In the next row, I decreased one stitch on each end by picking up 2 stitches and sc them together (I hope this makes sense because I don't really know proper terms as I kinda learned how to crochet on my own). -- do this in every other row.
In the next row, SC in every stitch.
repeat until the hat is long enough to cover the back of the person's head or however long you want it to go.

I finished it off making the cord off one of the ear flaps by chaining 50 stitches, then go back and sc in every stitch until you get back to the earflap, sc 1 into the ear flap then sc back to the end of the cord and back to the ear flap again,then joined the edges of the cord together with chain stitches.  Repeat to make the cord for the other earflap.

I hope this makes sense to you... let me know if you have any questions and I will try to clarify... sorry, I don't know how to write a pattern...

I don't know if this matters or not, but I used an I size crochet hook.

Neosynthesis - The project came out awesome!  I haven't seen them before, but then again I live in a little podunk town.   Tongue   I'm absolutely going to have to make one!!!  I'm sure it will turn heads!  And I have three nephews that would love these!

As for the tut:  Props for the explanation, and your terminology is very very close to a technical pattern!  Terrific job!!!   Wink
