The sunny colors in this hat match the Sherbet Strips Blanket. The ribbed brim is worked in a solid color, with the Tunisian knit stitch crown worked in stripes. A fluffy pom-pom adds a flourish.

You will need 1 skein of each of three colors (pink/449, yellow/215, and carnation/457), but you will not use up full skeins.

Hook is a size H Tunisian hook with plastic extension.

You will need a pom-pom maker or two circles of cardboard to make the pompom.
