This is the 3rd hat in my Let It Snow Collection ebook.

I love snowflakes and simply had to create an easy snowflake design for my winter hat collection! I also needed a large size hat to donate to the homeless shelter in our church on Christmas Eve. It kind of slipped around on my daughter’s head during the photo shoot but we had fun with it. Instructions do include S, M, L sizes.

The bold, geometric pattern on this hat is worked using only one color on any given round and instructions are included for both a slouchy hat and a beanie shape.

This pattern is a great introduction to colorwork without the hassle of carrying two strands of yarn at once.

The hat is truly unisex and can be made with or without the pom pom.

What a great way to use up stash and leftover yarn from other projects!

Construction is bottom up, seamless, and worked in the round.

The instructions are both charted and written and the pattern has been professionally tech edited and tested.
