Kevin McCallister's Moose Hat
This pattern is the closest recreation of the hat that Kevin McCallister wears in the Home Alone movie that I could make. The chart for this pattern was created by staring intently at a screen shot of the hat while I counted stitches and translated it into an Excel spreadsheet.
The hat is a slouchy, colourwork toque with a large pom pom. It is worked in the round with two colours, and features sections of long floats. The pattern calls for knitting a partial lining to tuck up inside the hat for extra warmth, and to provide a smooth edge for the hat.
This hat requires two contrasting colours in a DK weight yarn. Knitters must be able to confidently knit in the round, cast on with a provisional crochet cast on, and knit two-colour stranded colourwork.
