The construction of this hat was inspired by one pictured in a magazine published around 1910. Knitting the headband side to side provides a double layer of garter stitch to keep the ears warm, and allows for easy shaping of the earflaps. The edges of the headband are folded together along a slipped stitch seam, and picked up together to finish in the round. The hat has plenty of depth so it can be pulled low on the forehead, and the earflaps will naturally cup around the ears to keep them…
The 1x1 rib as well as the smaller needles make for a dense, very warm hat. The stitch is also super stretchy so the pattern is written in one size with changes to the length to accommodate different sizes.
