Snowflake Bulky Knit Hat Pattern

Summer is my favourite time for knitting – I have 7 projects on my needles and I would have even more projects if I were to have more needles sets. During summer heat I am more productive and creative than during any other time. I’m full of ideas for new patterns and have enough energy to finish them along with all my house chores, exercise, and project sharing on social media. Today I’m happy to present a bulky snowflake hat pattern – simple and quick in the making but with a flavour of chilli pepper in its look. Follow the instructions below and enjoy knitting!

<> Circular (40 cm) or double pointed knitting needles, size 9 (US 13/UK 0)

Fasten off leaving 10 cm tail. Weave tail through remaining 11 stitches. Pull tail to close top. Weave in all ends securely.

Add your favorite faux or real fur pom pom.

Love this! It was my first project that wasn’t a dishcloth, and my first time knitting in the round. It was easy to do, and turned out beautifully!
