In my childhood there was a film called Gummi-Tarzan, which is part of Danish pop culture for my generation. The main character was named Ivan Olsen and he wore a hat a bit like this one, and so the hat is called the Ivan Olsen hat in my head. Of course I don’t want to infringe on anybody’s copyright, so on paper it is just called Olsen.

The earflaps on the hat are shaped using short rows. You can see a little illustrated tutorial of mu favorite short row technique ?here?.
