Blog Post: I designed this hat with my first Purl &Jane Yorkshire Yarn (now sold out but more coming once the sheep have grown it!) and wrote about it here Introducing my new Malham Mule Patterns, and Pattern of the Week: Beck Beanie
My design ideas and advice: This fun ribbed pom pom hat uses the simple rib which means you can easily knit this pattern longer so that your hat can either have a brim, if you want it to, or if you knit the short version it becomes a fitted beanie. I love adding a touch of colour to the hat with a pom pom, this can use oddments of other knitted things, to leave you with a hat that reminds you of all those lovely things you have made. It uses super chunky yarn so if you are an experienced knitter it can be knitted in an evening – perfect if you want a new hat for a chilly frosty morning!
