Inspired by the excitement that comes with the first flurry of snowflakes in winter, blocks of color pair with graphic snowflake motifs in this warm hat.

Starting with an optional Tubular Cast On in contrasting color, a wide brim is created in the round using 1x1 Rib. The main hat starts with a band of snowflake motifs in stranded colorwork, followed by a contrasting color band. The crown is decreased in sections using K2tog and SSK stitches. The hat is finished with a pom-pom.

Sample is 20.5” size

Colorwork pattern is charted only.
