Deeply ribbed slouchy hat with a snappy fair isle pattern, topped with a dashing dotted pom-pom!
The first half is quick and mindless, a perfect take along project. The colorwork requires a little more attention but by then you'll welcome the challenge.
Worked in the round from the bottom up beginning with a deep 1x1 rib for a folded brim followed by a bit of stockinette stitch and a stranded colorwork pattern.
The sizing is very forgiving and will fit many different heads. You'll notice that I've made it in different weights of yarn, Heilo, which here on ravelry is called sport but in my opinion is more of a DK...and a worsted weight. Both are lovely hats. The one made with DK is a little..squishier..the worsted weight one a little ..denser.. but they both have the same gauge. The wonder and mystery of knitting! So that means you can attack your stash.
A worsted weight yarn suggestion is shown below.
