Inspiration strikes at any time! The idea for this hat came to me from a pair of slippers, my lovely Mum sent to me, last Winter. Their Humbug stripes and jolly pompoms cheered my feet up. Now my head can be just as happy! As fun to knit as it is to wear, this top down, seamless hat has a shapely, short row brim and optional pompoms.
