This cozy topper features a little bit of colorwork and a cheerful pom-pom. And in worsted weight, this knits up quickly, making it a wonderful last minute gift. If you’re new to colorwork, this pattern has all the right ingredients to make this a gentle approach: a small pattern repeat, worked in the round, with worsted weight yarn. And as an added bonus, this is an excellent stashbusting project.
