Ear flap Hat

My first knitting project of the year is complete! I finished the earflap hat I started at Thanksgiving!

I was feeling a bit silly was taking the photos, but this hat definely calls for silly. The pattern is Laura Irwin's Fawn Earflap Hat which isn't silly by itself, but paired with the fun Chunky Boho yarn in the Singapore Sling colourway, it is very silly. I did make a few modifications to the pattern since my gauge was not right, my head is small, and I was running out of yarn. The changes were all for the crown of the hat; I shortened it majorly and changed up the decreases by alternating placement and knitting through the back loop (which made them less noticeable and used less yarn). I haven't added any ties to the ends of the flaps, I may add a button and an elastic loop instead of ribbons to secure the flaps on top. What are your thoughts?
