A warm and protective knit, this aran weight aviator style Hat with integrated earflaps offers comfort on cold days and long nights. Initially started in pieces which are joined as the Hat progresses, the design calls for a garter stitch band and ear flaps to be worked before joining to create a smooth crown of warm stockinette.
