Well, this hat proved much simpler than the Dunland Shieldman’s Hat to knit thus far! My plan to knit the ear flaps via short rows worked out pretty well, and the pointy top came out about right too, don’t you think?
So that’s the hard part done. Now I’m just knitting the little patches to sew on the sides, and then will embroider the detail on the front. That’s hat number 2 all but done!
