Snazzy hat in time for warm weather

The finished product for my little guy's hat.
The flaps were improvised at the last minute.

My kiddo had pretty cold cheeks the other day when he came in from playing in the snow.
So I got my act together and finished the hat I'd started for him in January.
His cheeks were so red, I decided to add the cheek flaps, which I improvised (did not follow a pattern).
I used Red Heart's color Sunrise, and it turned out pretty cool.
Sunrise color from Red Heart.

I'm a bit strange when it comes to crocheting hats, but I like to start from the bottom up.
This pattern isn't anything fancy. I started with a chain-65 and worked my way up in single crochet rows until the popcorn stitch. After the two rows of popcorn stitch, I completed four rows of double crochet and then began to decrease until I closed the top.
He wanted a bobble, or pom pom, so I had to figure out how to do that. It's super simple, by the way!
So, now he has to wear his hat inside and outside. That's how cool he thinks it is!
