Notes
The hat begins by knitting back and forth in rows, then the stitches are joined and worked in the round for a little ways before beginning the crown shaping. The crown is decreased. The first I-cord tie is knit and attached to the opening in the hat, and the second I-cord tie is knit. Ears are knit and sewn to the top of the hat.
