Tis the Season is a fun collection of 4 hats perfect for gift knitting and colder weather. Make them for your guys and gals and for yourself!
*********************************************

Sometimes designs name themselves. As I was knitting up this hat sample, the loopy cable design brought back fond memories of my father reading one of our favorite childhood Little Golden Books. It was called “Loopy De Loop Goes West”. It was so much fun to listen to him do the voices and all the sound effects. This hat is just as much fun and has as many twists and turns as the book did!

The cable can be done with or without a cable needle and the bobbles are worked in a single row.

The Loop de Loop hat can be made in many yarn weights and is offered in 5 sizes. Sizes will vary depending on yarn weight and gauge.

Loop de Loop is a great way to use up stash and leftover yarn from other projects!

The pattern has been professionally tech edited and tested. Instructions are both written and charted.
