This is the little black dress of winter hats. I have one that I wear constantly, and it works with everything in my winter wardrobe. It is knit in the round, with the little bow edge knit at the end. We made ours using Rowan- 4 ply wool yarn( on special right now!), we prefer black , of course. You will need 2 balls, some needles and off you go! The best part about it is we are giving you the pattern for free!
