Easy, quick & stylish – this hat will keep your head & ears warm on those cold winter days!

The short row brim in garter stitch is not only fun to knit but also practical to wear. The main part is worked in stockinette stitch and is great to let a special yarn or your favorite color shine – I fell in love with this minty color called water green!

The hat is finished with an easy, fast and fun pom-pom!

Please feel free to play with colors: Use one color for the whole hat, two colors (one for the brim and pom-pom, one for the body) as per pattern, you can use a crazy skein of handspun goodness or use up all your leftovers and make a fun and stripy hat! In short: have fun and make it your own!
