Knit in bulky weight, Buckalope is a quick and fun knit that produces a stunning result! This hat begs for a pom pom - make one from your leftover yarn or purchase one made of fluffy faux fur or alpaca - you can’t go wrong!

When Liesl of Buckaloo View asked me to collaborate, I jumped at the chance! The idea for this hat came to me after seeing and feeling the dreamy, naturally-dyed yarn that Liesl creates. I recommend using her yarn to make your hat extra soft and squishy! Regardless of the yarn you use, the lush cables create a piece that is substantial and warm.
