A couple months ago I whipped up this simple hat. The design was originally intended to be part of the In Rhythm hat collection, but I swapped it out. Instead of Knit Picks yarn I settled on Scarfie from Lion Brand. It’s a 2-Color ombré yarn with single ply construction and a bulky weight. It’s super lofty and worked out great for the hat.

Originally I intended it to be just a slouch style, but it looks good cuffed and worn as a beanie as well.

I wear this one pretty often. The coloring works out well for my wardrobe with black matching everything and the pink offering a fun pop to winter colors. I rocked it while shoveling out from our blizzard a few weeks ago.

You can see the difference in fit between my head and my sister. Same hat. Worn uncuffed. It’s less floppy on me. I also tend to pull my hats down further over my ears.

Stay tuned for the free pattern! I’m hope next week (weekend of the 27th/28th) that I get some solid time to work on uploading designs.
