Hat in EIGHT sizes with optional jumbo pom pom
Here is a fun fair isle hat to which you can add my optional giant pom pom! Knitted in 4 ply acrylic chenille and oddments of 4 ply acrylic. (Although it can be knitted in any 4 ply yarn which knits up to the same tension.) Great for using up very small amounts of yarns. Designed for standard gauge punchcard / electronic machines with ribbers. Skill level; INTERMEDIATE. The pattern is written in three a fantastic eight sizes, from premature baby through to man's extra large head.
Although I have knitted the hat in bold colours, it can be made in a selection of neutals, baby pastels or bright neons, depending which member of the family you are knitting for.
I have a B.A. (hons) degree in knitwear design and have written for Machine Knitting News, Modern Knitting, Profitable Machine Knitting as well as yarn companies, including Bramwells and Atkinsons. I currently design for Machine Knitting Monthly.
