DIY Kit - Vertical Stripe Pompom Hat
This hat is knit bottom-up and in the round. A 1x1 rib section is worked first, followed by a stockinette section. Both sections use stranded colorwork to create the vertical stripes: One stitch is worked in color 1, the next is worked in color 2, the next in color 1, and so on. The crown of the hat is formed by simple decreases worked in a single color, and then the top of the hat is cinched closed. A pompom can optionally be made from the leftover yarn from either or both colors and attached to the top of the hat.
Dream is our new name for Merino Worsted yarn. Though the name is different and we have a new palette of color offerings, nothing else about Dream has changed: it is the same yarn you know and love!
