I have thick hair and, as I refer to it, a "big ass" head. That said, I am growing my pony tail one more time to donate it to Pantene for wigs for women.
However, it has been YEARS since I wore a pony tail in the winter and my ears are already cold. This lead me to make this hat.
|You can tell by the stray piece of yarn across my head,|
the hat wasn't done yet.
It is bulky and warm. I wanted to make it as warm as possible, using the yarn I had on hand, so I added more yarn to make the turn up brim wider. This way, my ears will be covered by two thicknesses.
I like the corkscrews, they just add some fun to the hat.
If you prefer a simpler design around the opening, I have included a picture and pattern for what I call “loopies.”
Then, of course, you might wish yours to be plain, I have included a picture of the hat before it was finished, at the top of this page, to show off the plain pattern.
