The journey of designing this hat began with one fluffy skein of super bulky yarn and the need to find a stylish and wearable, but modern look for such a thick yarn. Challenge accepted. The result is this super-quick and addictive pattern based on the traditional bamboo stitch. It has hidden crown decreases that blend seamlessly into the rest of hat.

We all have that one skein of super bulky yarn that has been waiting for the perfect opportunity--this is it! It also makes an affordable option for gift knitting or make one for yourself in an afternoon. Enjoy!
