A tasseled, pom pomโ€™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
knitterโ€™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. Itโ€™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:
