The Northdale Hat is a wee offshoot of my Northdale sweater. This is a quick and relatively easy knit being that it is in DK weight yarn and only uses 3 colors. For extra jauntiness stick a pom pom on it!

17 ¼ inch circumference at brim; 7 ¾ inches tall from brim to crown.

US 4/3.5mm 16-inch circular needle
US 6/4mm 16-inch circular needle
US 6/4mm set of dpn’s or long circular needle (if prefer using magic loop)

DK weight yarn in the following amounts:
80 yards of MC, 65 yards of CC1 and 35 yards of CC2 (extra yardage of CC1 required if making a pom pom).
