Materials

Medium weight yarnYarn: Stylecraft Aran (100% Acrylic; 214 yards [196 meters]/100 grams): 1218 Parchment (A, 1 ball), 1422 Aspen (B, 1 ball), 1083 Pomegranate (C, 1 ball)

Hook: US size I/9 (5.5 mm)

Notions: Tapestry needle, jumbo pompom maker, stitch marker

Pattern Notes

Using a stitch marker: The main section of the hat is worked in rnds. You may find it useful to place a stitch marker in the top of the first st to mark start of rnd.

Hidden seam: Avoid uneven seams or gaping holes in your hat by skipping over ch sts at the beg of the rnd. Joins should be made to first st. You should start next rnd in the same st as your ch sts. This allows the ch to become “filler” sts and keeps your seam from having large holes.
