If you’re looking to change up your winter hat routine, this is a great place to start! This pattern starts with the ribbed brim, created using the BLO technique, and then works up in a series of shells (fans) and front post stitches to create columns. The texture is both lovely and sturdy, and the repeat is simple enough you can work on this hat while sitting in front of the TV! A slight decrease at the top of the hat makes the top easier to sew shut, and a pom pom adds the perfect touch.

Instructions are given for 3 adult sizes, and the sizing chart gives measurements for beanie, slight slouch, and full slouch hat.
