Here’s a cute and cozy knit we can’t wait to cast on! Alexis’ hat offers a little bit of everything to knitters of all skill levels. Knit in our soft and plump Chickadee, the color combinations are seemingly endless. Fun and fascinating techniques abound: from Vikkel braids, to popcorn stitches, to compelling colorwork, we can’t get enough of this hat’s merry-go-round of knitterly delights. Top it off with an optional pom pom, for a final splash of color—we recommend using our Limited Edition Pom Pom Maker for fun (and easy) pom pom making.
