An ear flap hat worked in the round. Knitted from the bottom up, the top is sewn across and “ears” are stitched in for finishing.
The entire brim has an attached i-cord with four dangling pom poms. Super cute for winter months.
Lain is the main character from an anime, “Serial Experiments: Lain”.
It was one of the first anime’s I watched and, although Lain doesn’t wear this hat in particular, it reminds me of something she would wear.
