The earflaps are both worked first, then stitches are cast on for the front and back of the cap, and joined to work in the round. The colorwork pattern is worked using larger needles, then the crown is worked in garter stitch using the main color and the smaller needles. After blocking the hat, an attached i-cord and braid are worked in contrast color.
