I knitted this hat from a pattern I found in Joelle Hoverson's book, "Last Minute Knitted Gifts."  (An awesome book, may I say.)

I used 100% wool in army green and an eggplant color.

Umm, no.  I look like a big enough dork wearing it already!  (No offense to the pom-pom enthusiasts! Hahaha!)

I just knit almost the same hat (from the same pattern, that is!) in knitpicks Andean Silk (slate, navy) but the ear flaps I knit seperately and blocked them because they kept curling up on me. I knit it for my husband, hope he likes it!

The tassels are actually very easy to make.  They, too, are in the book "Last Minute Knitted Gifts."  They are worked like a basic tassel, then wrapped.  I think they only work with I-cord, though.  This is how they are done:

Cut a few strands (I used 6) of yarn to measure the same length.  (A little over twice as long as you want the tassel.)  Gather the strands together and fold in half to make a loop at the top.  Using a crochet hook, stick the hook in the center bottom of the i-cord, right through the middle of the braid.  Grab the "loop" of the tassel with the hook and pull it through the hole.  Slip the end of the tassel (the fringe part) through the loop and pull it tight.  (Like making plain ole fringe.)  This next part is what makes it look like a tassel.  Cut a long piece of yarn and line it up with the bottom of the fringe.  Run the yarn up the side of the fringe, and about an inch above the knot, start wrapping it around the i-cord, down past the knot about a 1/4 inch.  Thread a yarn needle with the wrapping strand and run it up through the wrap.  From the top, run it back down through the other side of the inside of the wrap.  Trim that strand to be even with the rest, and you're done!  It really isn't complicated, and it looks very fancy!

I hope that was helpful.  If I made a mistake, or was unclear, let me know!
