Polar Vortex approved! I took this beauty for a test drive in the sub-zero temps of the polar vortex and boy, did it keep me cozy!

This aran weight hat features a doubled brim grafted together and continues with a lofty bobble and cable motif around; finished with a pom pom if you choose. (If you wish to make your own pom pom with the same material, you will need an additional skein)

One size with plenty of stretch.
To fit 21” - 23” head circumference.

I designed the hat using Purl Soho Alpaca Pure (aran weight). I recommend alpaca for this hat as the material has such a beautiful drape for the thickness.

I am always happy to receive constructive criticism for my designs and welcome any suggestions. If you have any questions about the pattern, please don’t hesitate to reach out.

Happy Knitting!
