An easy pattern with some short rowing near the beginning to create the flap, and an interesting crown decrease. The crown is shaped by dividing the stitches into 5 sections and decreasing once in each section, every round. Different from the more common crown shaping which is to divide into 8 sections and decreasec one each section, every other round.
The pattern says to turn the flap up, onto the side of the hat, and tack into place. I haven't got that far yet because I wanted to see if it might look better to wear the flap differently than suggested. In front, cap-like, perhaps?
Or down to warm one ear.
Or maybe, just as the designger intended.
