The Chunky Bee Knit Hat is an adult-sized, chunky, slouchy knit hat with a color pattern around part of the hat body. It is knit in the round from the bottom up, starting with 1x1 ribbed band, and then transitions to the stockinette hat body with color pattern. There are also a few purl stitches forming the middle of the bee bodies.

The color pattern for the hat body is worked on a 10 stitch repeat over 12 rows using the fair isle yarn carrying technique.

The hat is finished with a large yarn pom pom.

Finished dimensions: 17 inches in circumference, 10.5 inches in height
