Montage is a comfy hat you won’t be able to resist on cold and breezy days. It features earflaps and dense fabric to ward off chills in the air. It’s just a bit slouchy, and it’s topped with a pom pom. What more can you ask for in a hat?

This hat begins by knitting two earflaps separately from the bottom up. After the earflaps are complete, they are joined together with cast-on stitches to create a brim that is then is worked in the round. The brim and body of the hat are worked with contrasting colors. A pom pom is secured to the top of the hat, and braided ties are attached to the bottom of each earflap.
Montage is available as part of e-book Cinema: In the Spotlight, and as an individual pattern through Ravelry.
