This fun bonnet is initially knit back and forth to create a brim that is worn at a more vertical angle, while also allowing for a low ponytail.

Thanks to its bulky yarn, this hat is a quick, simple knit that still maintains a fun, fashion forward style with its seed stitch brim, slouchy fit, and fluffy pompom.

Substitute your favorite wool super bulky yarn for extra toastiness or use a different color for the pompom or brim to truly make it yours.
