Wow I didn't know so many of you would be interested in Sydney's hat! Yes I made it, I actually made it last year based on this pattern using the knifty knitter round looms. I didn't follow her instructions exactly such as: at the "first ear flap" I counted 9 pegs to the left and not 6. I also made the flaps on a different loom and then transferred them. On both earflaps I knit 7 rows even, instead of 5. And the last thing is the i-cord instructions for the loom in pdf format can be found here: http://www.loomknit.com/instructions1.html
I've made this hat much smaller for Jevan, as well as an extra large for my older sister Biffy and both turned out fine.
An almost identical hat made for Sydney can be found here.
A similar hat but with a built in scarf instead of earflaps can be found here.
