I’m a busy mom of 3 wonderful girls. I deal with household, organize daily life, run family business, knit and design and do my best to keep everyone healthy, well fed, content and alive. So I regularly make stupid mistakes, like loosing my hat in the very beginning of the winter. Winter is serious here, you can’t function long without proper knitwear.
So I did what any sensible knitter would do, searched my deep stash for some thick yarn and finished a new hat in only one night. The bulky yarn makes this hat warm and windproof, and it’s only a few hours work to make – the multitasking mom’s dream. It runs so fast in large needles, with a simple pattern that is easy to remember. A great pattern for a last-minute gift too.

This cozy hat knits up quickly. This is a nice, easy, reversible pattern. It would be good for anyone from beginners to expert knitters.
