Basic Skills Necessary:

  • Knitting, Purling, Casting on, Binding off

Pattern Description:

Using the same stitch pattern as the Symbiotic cowl, the Autonomous makes the perfect complement to your outer wear wardrobe.
Don't wear cowls? No worries, Autonomous has no problem being the solo star of the show.

This hat can be knit all in one color or for more punch, add in a second color for the pompom.
Have you sometimes stumbled on pretty leftovers in your stash where the colors make a good match, but they can(tm)t be used together because their yarns weights are just too different?
Now, now can pair them in one hat by making the pompom from a different yarn, because for this, the yarn weight doesn(tm)t matter.

Autonomous has one other great advantage! It is reversible :) So attach your huge pompon to the safety pin and you can wear it on either side of your hat.
