This pattern is written with optional brim shaping to lower the earflap and neck length for a warmer version. This shaping is done early in the pattern through the use of short rows. Follow the instructions for your chosen style during that section. The pattern is also shown with an accent color trim at base of brim (Soot version). If you wish to add this accent, you will need a few yards of yarn in an alternating color to begin your hat.

Hat is worked in the round from the bottom up. Optional earflap shaping is worked using short rows.
