Knitting Haddie? Come join the Winterlong KAL in the Blue Bee Knits group!

The classic herringbone hat, updated. Crisp ribs extend from the band, and etch a beautiful geometric design that ends in sharp crown decreases. Knit it as a slightly slouchy cap, or as a more fitted beanie. Finish with a pompom, or not, and enjoy every minute you spend making this quick and easy hat.

Haddie knits up in just a few hours and makes the perfect project for a skein of bulky yarn—and a great last minute gift!
