Designed to be a useful swatch for the Pop Crop Sweater, Pop Hat knits up fast, and with its straightforward construction, it will make a wonderful first hat project. Use coordinating or contrasting glitter yarn held together with the main colour for the ribbing, creating a subtle marled glitter contrast. Or if you’re not a glitter-knitter, you may prefer to hold kidsilk or a contrasting-coloured yarn as an alternative to the glitter pop. A relaxed, slightly slouchy finish will make this a favourite.
