Nothing exudes that fun, flirty, ready-for-adventure-at-the-drop-of-a-hat vibe like a giant pom-pom. Dropping this hat, however, will not be on your agenda. Flipping arm knitting to the purl side allows the big arm-knit stitches to stretch hoizontally and form a warmer, tighter fabric. The modern horizontal stitches contrast beautifully with the cheery pom!

I love this hat. It is fun and fast to make. It looks great on anyone too!
