Have you been naughty or nice this year? Either way you will be warm and cosy in this reversible pompom hat.

Wear it with the brim folded up for a fitted beanie style or inside out for a slouchy style.

Both ways will show off the cable detail on the brim. If you’re decisive you can attach the pompom permanently or if you want the flexibility you can secure the pompom with a pin or brooch back and change it up.

Delve into the stash for two balls of DK weight yarn in colours that make you happy!

I would recommend wool or a wool blend for that stretch and stay-ability we want in a hat.
