Judy is a quick and easy ponytail hat that ends with a simple peek-a-boo opening. One size fits most – this exact hat was snatched off the needles by ladies of many different ages and sizes almost as fast as I could knit them over the holidays. It fit a little slouchy on Corrine, just right on Amanda and Kaylene, a little loose on Tessie, a little tight on Naomi…you get the picture – one size really does fit most. Named Judy after a sweet pony from my childhood. From time to time I like to offer a free pattern. So, I’m releasing this simple one-size ponytail hat recipe for free. Happy knitting!
