Can a lovely knitter help me?

We were given what was without a doubt the best ever hat/cagoule for our toddler, but the little so-and-so has chucked it out of his pram and it is now lost!

All I know about the pattern is what I can google translate from this website (the hat was given to us by a dear French friend who had it handmade, so I'm quite sure this is the source):

I've looked on the Phildar website and I don't think I can see it anywhere.

I can knit, and I think that this pattern is probably not so difficult. Does anyone know how I might go about replicating it?

Here are the images of the hat taken from that web page.

Any help/ideas will be greatly appreciated!

I'm fairly sure from looking at your second picture that it was knitted flat as a rectangle with a long vertical piece at either side, then folded in half along the cast on edge to make the centre back seam.

If you enlarge the pictures enough (particularly the second one) you should be able to work out the number of stitches and the row count.

I think the back seam is the cast on row. Then do about 20 rows then cast off the centre section and knit up the two strips that tie.

I'm by no means an expert but from the pics this is what I'd do:

Cast on enough stitches for twice along the right-hand side of the second pic (about 2 x 36 from what I can see but I'd count again more carefully) so roughly 70 stitches. (Maybe more if you think you need a bigger size for your toddler?)

Knit every row (NOT in the round) until you get down to where it becomes the scarf bits. I think about 22 rows (add a couple more for what will be sewn in)

Then knit 12 (ish) stitches (or however wide you want the scarf to be)

Cast off next 58 stitches (or however many you need to so that you have the same number of scarf stitches left on the needle. Knit these last 12 (?) stitches.

Put the 12 stitches you just knitted onto a stitch holder.

Knit the first set of 12 that are still on the needle until it is the length you want the scarf to be (I think it's about 35 rows in the pic). Cast off.

Put the last 12 stitches from the stitch holder onto your needle and knit these until it is the same length as the other scarf side. Cast off.

Finally, fold over so it looks like the second pic and sew the top together.

Hope I explained it okay - not 100% sure it would work but happy to answer more questions

Here is the actual pattern on another bog. In French but it is straightforward enough.

Google Translation
Knit Beanie Scarf: Size 0 - 12 months

Needle 5 1/2 or 6 + 2 balls Patner 6 from Phildar or equivalent sample 10 × 10: 15m x 21 row / 50g = 66m

Cast on 75 knit Pattern garter st
for 16 cm
On next row knit 11 sts,
Cast off next 53 sts.
Then knit last 11 sts for 24 cm.
On the next row cast off
the 11th sts. Pick up the remaining 11 sts and knit for 24.
On the next row cast off the 11 sts.

This forms a large U. For assembly, fold the hat in 2 by the center and sew it

If you have problems understanding, I went on Youtube and I found videos very well done.

Thank you thank you thank you everyone! I knew there would be some experts on here. I'm going to pop to the shops tomorrow and buy some wool and have a go thanks

Will also buy a stitch holder yaela - I had no idea such things existed!

Glad someone found the actual pattern! You don't really need a stitch holder, a spare piece of yarn, large safety pin, dpn, etc would work too, or in this instance you could even just leave it on the needle but who doesn't want a new knitting gimmick?
