This cute hat is knitted in the round and I used 40cm circular needles to make it. The fair isle is a 12 stitch repeating pattern which is quite straightforward to work.

The hat uses one ball each of the main colour and an extravagant second contrast colour ball for the pom pom - well worth it in my opinion!

I used a large Clover pom-pom maker to make my pom and then steamed it over the kettle when I had finished to make the fibres fluff up.
