Knit your own! Complete pattern, charts, and instructions to knit a Cozy woolen ski hat.. featuring traditional Scandinavian motifs blended with some very nontraditional, painfully cute and (maybe!) mildly diabolical garden gnomes. Extra Long length. Four gnomes, altogether.. separated by bits of foliage.. cause that’s how they like it.

size- adult. one size fits many. The hat is 9.5 inches in diameter unstretched. About 11 inches long, excluding pompom. pompom is 2.5 inches in diameter.
knit in the round using fair isle techniques.

skills: cast on, knit, purl, knit in the round (on circular and double pointed needles), knit with two colors, decrease,increase, bind off

tools and materials:
3 balls Knit Picks palette (or other fingering weight) yarn- 2 balls in color A (I used Serrano) and one in color B (I used Cream). You may only need one ball of color A, depending on the.. intensity of your pompom. Each ball of Knit Picks palette is 231 yards and 50 g. total weight of the finished hat is about 78g.
