There are lots of other waffle stitch hat patterns out there. This one is different because of the hat decreases. I didn’t like the decreases in other designs looked so I found a way that looks better and fits better.

A note about yarn choices. I can easily get a hat out of any of the Lion Brand Thick and Quick skeins. It does take a little over a skein when I use Plymouth Encore Mega. Your yardage usage might vary from mine though.

I included an option to make this into a messy bun beanie at the end of the pattern. I sell them at craft shows and they are SUPER popular. People love them.

A note about the pom pom: It was made using Silver Fox Faux Fur from Joann’s Fabrics. I cut out a 6” circle for this size and I find it’s a great size for my hats.

Here’s a great tutorial. She has some really great tips!!
