This fun, warm hat is an easy and quick project! Living in the mid-west means chilly Fall weather and freezing Winters. I love coming up with new patterns for my family and friends during this time of year. This cozy checkered hat is perfect as a gift, or just for yourself. Enjoy!
-Lions Brand Thick n Quick, Big Twist, or Buttercream Yarn For this hat I chose to do a different color for the brim of the hat, but you could always make it in one solid color. For the hat in the picture I used Lions Brand Thick n Quick yarn in ‘Black’ and ‘Fisherman’.
-#15 circular needles (16 inch)
-Tapestry needle for weaving through and tying-off.
