*********************************************
Crown Point can be worn as a close fitting hat or a little bigger and slouchier with a pom pom. The cables are fun to make and to wear and really show off a beautiful yarn.

Crown Point is a great way to use up stash and leftover yarn from other projects!

The Crown Point Hat is truly unisex and can be made in many yarn weights. The size will vary depending on yarn weight and gauge.
