more color

after i finished my infinity scarf the other day, i was itching for another colorwork project. i searched ravelry, looking at other projects using the yarn leftovers from my scarf. but instead, i settled on a fun hat with a pompom, free by bernat!


i used the bernat "mosaic" for the variegated, and a red heart yarn for the solid. the pattern is written to knit flat, but i converted it to in the round.



i knitted all day saturday. literally. after i got home from getting the yarn (for which i had coupons) (it's a $6 hat!), i knitted knitted and knitted. i was still knitting just before midnight.

sunday morning, i got up and made my pompom, sewed it on and steam blocked the top section of the hat. i didn't want the steam anywhere near the ribbing.


this hat was all about the pompom. i really just wanted a hat with a pompom!

You are too funny! Maybe you should put mini pompoms for your second socks! Do you want socks with pompons?
