Woolen cap with small brown earflaps and braided ties and a red and white yarn tuft on top. The hat is primarily brown, but there is a band of solid colored triangles above a band of two-colored diamonds. The colors: red, white, green, orange, and dark blue. The colored decoration is only a surface treatment, and does not go through the substance of the hat.
