Really fun and warm giant pom-pom hat!
Knit in the round to create a seamless design. Using basic lace to create an interesting pattern, and a deep brim for warmth.
Will suit both men and women - the deep brim allows for a wide variety of head sizes.
The hat makes use of Knit Pick Palette (a peruvian wool for quality and warmth), which is held double to create the hat (can easily be replaced by a DK if preferred). And an acrylic-based aran to create the pom-pom (keeps it light on the head).
20 sts and 26 rows = 4"/10cm over garter stitch, holding two threads together, using 4 mm needles.
500 yards of Fingering weight
I have been crafting since childhood, but really took knitting properly in 2004, and dressmaking in 2012 (pretty recent).
