Inspired by a traditional Siberian Trapper Hat, Oriel is a warm double-layer hat with large earflaps, a generous brim, and sturdy I-cord Ties.

Oriel is constructed by making two different hats separately. Make the outer hat first, and then make the inner hat. The hats are joined together through two processes: whip stitch on the cast on edge, and a unique edging that uses a combination of 3-Needle Bind Off and Applied I-Cord.

This pattern is fully charted.
