It is knit in the round.
The hat fastens with a button under the chin to keep little heads snug and warm, and tiny toddler hands from pulling it off after two seconds, but if you are knitting for an older child and want the earflaps to hang freely just make two of the left earflap and don’t add a button – simple!
