Sometimes a little whimsy is in order.
A textured split brim, simple stockinette body, and spirited tassels come together for a fun little hat.
Perfect to showcase that special skein of kettle dyed yarn in your stash, it works up nice and quick, great for gifting or keeping.
Add a pom pom to top it off for even more spirit!
