What a great colorful hat to give as a gift! Toasty warm too, and you can use up all those small scraps of yarn in this pattern! Depending on colors your choose, this can be for kids to men to wear. Leave off the big bushy pompom if you wish, but we think it adds a lot of “cuteness” to the hat. A fun and easy pattern, makes a great way to learn to knit with different colors too. Make lots of these for the family and for gift giving! Uses worsted weight yarn, 16-inch circular needles US # 7 and # 8.
