Pattern Description from “What this hat lacks in complexity, it more than makes up for in versatility. Fun stripes, snaps or buttons and loads of styling options make this a fun and wearable piece. Based on my field work, I have determined that this hat, when worn with a ponytail or two, is sure to get a smile, so why not make a few in all your favorite colors.”
