I just finished it today, and I rather like how it turned out. It's made of super warm fleece and it's lined on the inside. The ears are long enough to use as a scarf, and the pockets are the perfect length to put your hands in. I'm surprised that the ears weren't too heavy for the hat. I did have some problems keeping the pockets closed though, but it works fine now. No pattern was used.

Now, on to the terrible photos!

The ears are huge!

Lined in red on the inside.

Pocket view - fastened with a button and some cording.

Action shot! Don't mind the shop vac, we're just doing some woodwork and we needed to clean the sawdust off the carpet. Grin I'll try to get a better action shot later, cause it's too dark right now.

What do you guys think? Like it? Hate it? Think it could be better? Comment and tell me!

Cute! I've always like hats you can use as scarves.

I give myself very good advice, but I very seldom follow it.

Ahhh! Such a cute idea (: Great job! Does it slip off if you put stuff inside the pockets though? The ears could also work as a scarf (if you forget yours at home!) just wrap them around your neck CX

Thanks for the comments guys! I'll be sure to work on some other hat designs in the future, and perhaps a tutorial if anyone wants to make their own. Smiley

@Solarwen: It stays on for stuff like a cell phone, ipod, and even my camera, but with heavier things, like the camera, it pulls the ears taught and makes your head want to lean over in one direction. Undecided It's really sturdy! It takes as much weight as my head can easily support.

(: Well, a leaning head is a small price to pay for the convenience of having those things easily on hand. I hate digging through my purse with my phone ringing and not being able to reach it!

I think its funny, but in a good way.  I've always liked to wear clothing that's make me giggle.

Ha ha ha!  That's grouse!  I had no idea what to expect from the title but that's awesome!  Practical too - hat, scarf and pockets all in one.

It reminds me of that song 'Do your ears hang low?'  Love it!

So much to make, so little time!

Cutest hat ever!  Made even better since it's multipurpose  Grin
