From the North American Schachenmayr website:
This bold hat, knitted in two versions with Schachenmayr original Boston and Schachenmayr original Boston Style, isn’t for wallflowers! With such a bright color, the pattern is kept simple in plain garter stitch. It’s topped with a pompom - and you’ll be ready for whatever the winter holds in store.
