The Seaside Topper – by Emily Foden
This pom pom hat is a simple, colourful and fun knit. It will keep your head toasty warm, and looking great! With endless options for colour combinations, a secret stripe of extra warmth and softness and a simple-knitting stitch pattern, you’re sure to want to knit this hat over and over again. A brightly contrasting pom pom is just the cherry on top!
