Hunter hat

I am looking for a pattern for a hunter hat:  The kind that hunters wear, with the fold up or down ear flaps.  Has anyone ever seen one?

Thanks,

Bob

There are several ear flap hats at  www.knittingpatterncentral.com/directory/hats.php , hope you find one you like

Thanks, but they just have the same old stocking caps with ear flaps.... Not what I was looking for.  I'll just make my own pattern....what I usually do.  I was just feeling lazy.

 

Cheers,

I'll second Kerry's suggestion. There are plenty of ear flap, or chullo, patterns linked from that site that could be adapted to your tastes. I don't know that any of them have a front visor like a standard fleece-lined, sewn fabric hunter cap would have. That might take a bit of ingenuity to do in a knit version.

So how are things coming along on that kilt?

IF you design this pattern, can you bive/sell me a copy? I've been looking for days for a hunter/lumberjack knit pattern.
