Is that not the best description for this rainbow hat, knit in this yarn? The pom pom was the finishing touch. I will never almost get hit by a car while running again. Not with this rainbow pompom bouncing around down the road.
I made one of these Dee’s Slouch hats last year for my daughter’s friend, so I knew I liked the shape. Since I couldn’t use the Gynx yarn for my EZ sweater, I thought I’d at least use it quickly. So, tada…..
I used a size 3 circular for magic loop and knit as directed, except I added some length before decreasing for the top. The off-white yarn I used to fill in the pom pom is just Wool of the Andes in Cloud. The Gynx Yarn is the Totoro 2 color way.
I made the pom pom using two pieces of a gift wrap roller, as in this tutorial. It was a mess.
My head will never get cold this winter. Watch the first real cold front blow in while I’m away and hatless. I won’t say that I’m done knitting hats, though, because I won the yarn for Woolly Mammoth in a Holla Knits giveaway. So that will be happening very soon.
