Pattern Description:

This gorgeous ponytail hat is knit in Noro Kogarashi (or a bulky yarn of your choice) and finished off with two buttons to form a closure for your ponytail. If you're anything like me and wear your hair up almost 24/7, you will LOVE this hat! It's beautiful AND functional...

And the best part? It's super easy-to-knit. The pattern is simply a combination of knit and purl stitches.

Happy knitting!
