This project is easily knit in a day from start to finish. It is knit in the round using only the knit stitch (stockinette). The ears require a Turkish Cast-On for a finished appearance from the front or back of the hat, but you can certainly make them differently if desired, maybe doubling the yarn and following the directions (just so they are stiff enough to stand up on the hat).
