Worked in Sport (newborn & infant) or Worsted (child & adult) weight yarn, this pattern puts the knitter in the designing spotlight. 1 pattern + 2 styles + 4 panels per hat + 12 panels to choose = Endless Possibilities! YOU choose the panels: 4 of the same, 2 different alternated, 4 different or any combination in between. It all starts with a teeny rolled edge followed by 3 X 1 rib, then alternating panels chosen from the provided charts. Top with a layered pom pom, tassel or fairy pull. The pom pom sets off the panels nicely. The real fun of this hat is with one pattern, many different hats are possible. The panels are separated by a single column of seed stitch. The knitter can combine the panels any way desired. The possibilities are endless... 2 styles: Skull & Slouch. 4 sizes: Infant, Newborn, Child & Adult.
