The Story
A quick Pop Up shop project was requested at my LYS to feature these new super bright pom poms from Bernat. I tried 2 different hat designs before landing on this fir-cone inspired beanie… so Fir Times the Charm… get it?

Notes

  • This hat is worked in the round from the brim up beginning with the smaller needle for the Brim, changing to the larger needle for the Body of the hat.
  • Written instructions are provided for the entirety of the hat. Charted instructions are provided for lace Fir Cone lace section.
  • Adjust needle size as necessary to match gauge.
  • When the circumference of the hat becomes too small for the circular needle during the Crown Shaping, change to DPNs to finish the hat.
  • The CC used for the brim is a worsted weight yarn; this can easily be substituted by a bulky weight yarn to match the weight of the hat. Total CC yardage used: 10 yds
