Description from designer’s website:
With design input from my son I think we created the perfect teenager hat. The Surefire Hat has it all for both warmth and style. As soon as my other son saw the first hat he just had to have one of his own. Repeat knitting at its best.

errata:
Row 2 of the earflap is all purl stitches.
