Simple knit and purl stitches are all it takes to create this nicely textured lattice hat. And knit in bulky yarn on big needles, this hat is nice and chunky to keep a head warm and in style.
Can be worn back on the head for a little extra slouch or pulled down around the ears. Great unisex gift knit for any kid! Plus, if they wear it inside out, no one can tell!
Knit from the bottom up on circular needles for easy finishing. With many bulky yarns, this is actually a One-Ball project!
