There are lovely, subtle details to this hat: two layers of ribbing in the brim that point to the vertical colourwork lines; a crisp cast-on edge in the contrast colour; a rumply decrease section that helps with the casual, slouchy look. But that pomball, right?

Have fun with the contrast colour - the simple motif would look great in a variegated or striped colourway.

The pomball is written for DPNs, but it is easy to modify for magic loop or two circular needles with the addition of stitch markers.
