The hat is knitted on double pointed needles avoiding seaming but could easily be knitted flat on circulars with back seaming. A black ribbon through the ribbing makes the brim adjustable for different sizes. Twisted cords can be tied to make a little parcel for a rounder look or left to make a square shaped hat. The booties are knitted in a tighter gauge so they have 4 row stripes to match the width of stripes on the hat. They are knitted flat from the sole up and stitches are picked up around the ankle of the upper to knit a ribbed cuff which is seamed at the back continuous with the heel.
