This pattern is for a comfy hat with four friendly octopuses swimming above the band. Colorwork is charted. It is worked in two colors in the round, shaped with decreases around the crown. Any worsted weight yarn will work well. The band of the hat is double-thick ribbing for extra warmth, and extra stretch. An optional tassel or pom-pom gives this hat an added touch of playfulness, just in case the critters aren’t enough! Yardage is enough for a hat and matching mitts - perhaps some Octopus Mitts?
