A tasseled, pom pom’d, curly-cued slouch hat by Lisa McFetridge * Copyright 2014

Eleven small balls of bold colors.  Or maybe eleven balls 

of muted colors; tonals; even neutrals; greys, black, white.
The choice of colors will make these simple borders into the
knitter’s own unique creation. Little bits of favorite
sweaters, scarves or other knitting projects will get new life
in this cap. Like many, I save every bit of yarn. In this hat
one color is used on only one round, so no amount is too
small to put to use. Put the balls in a circle by color and
choose the best ones. No color is off the table, but do try to
stay with all brights, or all pastels or all neutrals. It’s the
main color that ties them all together, in the these photos it
is black. This hat is inspired by southwestern and Native
American motifs. Four sizes: Newborn (Infant, Child, Adult)

Materials:
Worsted Weight Wool. Colors in yardage correspond to colors in photo - a second set of black and white charts are included for knitter to substitute own color scheme - fill in chosen colors to the right on blank lines provided here and throughout the pattern:
