Everybody knows this iconic hairstyle worn by the lovely Princess Leia. One look, and it is instant recognition. I made this hat because I need a wig for a Leia costume, but I decided to make it double as a funny earflap hat... It is very warm! Not just for Halloween anymore, it is guaranteed to bring chuckles and comments all season long. :)
This hat is constructed as two separate sides, knit flat from the top down, and then sewn together to create a middle seam. The ribbing comes out from this seam all along the centerline of the head, so it looks more like hair being parted and pulled to each side. I hope you have as much fun knitting this cheeky hat as you will have wearing it!

All knitting patterns are in ENGLISH ONLY. Etsy has a great auto-translate feature... so this may lead some to believe the pattern is in their native language, but they are in English only. If you need a translation, all I can do is Google Translate or something like that. I apologize for the inconvenience to all my International friends.
