I will never forget experiencing my first blizzard! I was a young girl in Ohio and the snow around our house was piled as high as the windows! The best part of all was my mom sending all 7 of us outside to play--naturally we had to wear layers upon layers of winter ‘gear’. I had my favorite pompom hat perched on top of my head as I ran out into the snow. Needless to say, the snow forts my sibling and I made that winter were the best ever (and I was plenty warm)!

This quick-knit slouchy fitting hat has a soft rib, an eyelet ribbed pattern, and topped off with a Tosh fluffy llama pompom! Use 16” double pointed needles for even faster results.
