A couple of friends saw my original hat I made and wanted one for themselves so I tweaked my pattern a bit and now have written it up and added it to Ravelry as a free pattern. It is super basic, but what I love is that it is perfect for showing off these amazing variegated yarns by the Countess and they are super quick to knit.
Making pom-poms from the yarn is really fun. I have made the hat with medium and large pom-poms and all work.
The ribbing is very deep so you can fold it. That is how I like to wear it but you could make it less deep to not have to fold it or wear it super slouchy.
It takes barely 2 hours to make, is great TV knitting and makes awesome presents as well.
I hope you enjoy making it and do let me know of any pattern feedback. I want to learn. 🙂
