Just out in time for holiday gift making, The Puffy Pouf Hat from Jessie Maed Designs.
We love this bulky hat pattern for the clever use of an easy tubular cast, in a much smaller than gauge needle, which results in a nicely fitting brim that does not get too stretched out immediately!
With or without the addition of an extra large pom pom, this is a super cute and easy to make hat. You can knit up a bunch in time for holiday gifting (we plan to do so).
We chose to knit our version in a bulky weight 100% wool yarn. Puffin is one of our favorite bulky yarns. It is 100% domestic wool, spun and dyed in the USA. It comes is a range of fabulous colors. and it has a pretty good price point for a domestic yarn. We love it for sweaters as well as accessories.
We made the extra large pom pom using the Bow Pom Maker. We love this tool, which helps you make fool-proof dense poms-poms. The Puffy Pouf Hat Bundle comes with or without the Bow Pom Maker, as you like.
The bundle comes packed in a cotton drawstring bag and includes:
- 2 skeins of Puffin yarn (enough for 1 adult hat with a pom pom or 2 adult hats without)
- enough worsted weight yarn for the tubular cast on
- EWE stitch marker (for marking the beginning of the round)
- Bow Pom Maker (optional)
You can purchase a copy of the Puffy Pouf Hat pattern on Ravelry ($5).
Our sample was knit in the color Twig. Knit on a 16" US8 for the cast-on and setup rows, a 16" US10.5 for the body of the hat, and magic loop for the crown.
