This is the most adorable hat! I totally want one for me! This pattern is super easy and knits up very quickly! So in other words there is still time for you to make one (or more) as a gift! I think the Marabou pom-pom is a beautiful added touch, but you can make a regular pom-pom or keep it simple with nothing at all. We love the Zara Plus Yarn but any Chunky yarn with a gauge of about 4 stitches per inch will work. We have the pattern in children’s and adult sizes, so there can be hats for every one!
