Ambient Pop Hat – by Helena Timms


A simple and colourful slip stitch colourwork hat that is worked one colour at a time. The colours are inspired by some of my favourite album covers. You can use as many or as few contrast colours for the bubble stripes as you choose (and as many or as few stripes as you choose), and even add a pompom if desired. The hat is knit in the round with a large folded brim and a slightly loose fit and slouchy length. Available in 6 sizes from baby to large adult.
