There’s something about a stiff wind and cool temps that seems to bring out the sass in many prairie dwellers. If the weather is going to be grim, we aren’t. Sometimes it seems that the colder it gets, the wackier the hats become. This hat comes from this urge to turn silly when the weather turns serious.

Like knitting pomballs? There’s a whole Pomball Pop Collection!

Finished Measurements:
Newborn (Baby, Toddler/Preschooler, Adult Small, Adult Medium, Adult Large)
Circumference: 12 (14, 16, 18, 20, 22) inches/30 (35, 40, 45, 51, 56)cm
Depth: 6 (6.75, 7.5, 8.75, 9.75, 10.75) inches/15 (17, 19, 22, 25, 27)cm

Note: as written the newborn and baby sizes are not slouchy. This is because as a mother I didn’t like worrying about how the bulk of a hat felt in a car seat. It’s easy to add length if that’s your thing.
