So, when I decided to knit a hat for my niece and also my nephew, I went to the Purl Soho website for inspiration. I wanted a cute and easy hat with a little design, not so complicated with some details - not just plain stockinettte stitch.
I used Knitpicks bulky weight yarn and size U.S. 10.5 needles. This is an acrylic machine washable yarn available in most colors at a very affordable price. This hat also gave me the opportunity to learn the long tail tubular cast on. You can find details here in my Ravelry page. There is also a Long tail tubular cast on tutorial included in the pattern. You can get details here.
If you are looking for a quick and easy hat to knit, try the Purl Soho Friendly Fair Isle hat. And believe me, You can make it in just a few hours!
I love when I learn a new technique while knitting a cute gift. Oh and don’t forget the Pom Pom.
