A few weeks ago, I knit this ribbed, wool-blend, winter hat.

I love this yarn.  It is a really great shade of pink with subtle orange and purple striping.

I improvised the pattern, in hopes of making a cute, functional hat.  The main part of the hat is 4 x 4 ribbing, with a folded brim to keep it snug.  I added a home-made pom-pom to finish it off.  I think it worked out well.

In spite of the fact that it’s almost April, it’s still hat weather here in the Midwest.  Believe it or not, we are still getting snow!

~Happy knitting!
