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!

The original yarn was Malham Mule, the very first exclusive Purl and Jane Yorkshire yarn. The first edition has now sold out but keep watching my blog for some exciting news about a follow-up.
