Swanky, a unisex hat
The cool things about this hat are that it is a unisex design, comes in three sizes and the optional pompom can actually be moved anywhere on the hat. Place it on the very top like icing on the cake or on the side. It can even be used as a shawl pin! Talk about versatility!
The hat is knitted in the round from the bottom up in two varying rib patterns for extra interest.
Tubing is literally a tube shaped, smooth and sophisticated yarn that is stuffed with soft fleece.
For 20"/21"/22" in head circumference.
The knit kits include two options:
- 1) Hat only: Yarn for the body of the hat 2/2/3 skeins
- 2) Hat with optional pompom: Yarn (2/2/3 skeins for body plus the yarn in the portion for the pompom), the button and the butterfly pin with the soft rubber stop to hold the pompom in place comfortably
