Dscn9054The Happy Hat (knit)

(special kudos to Eunice Park for designing this hat in the first place…)

Children’s size first (women’s in parentheses). 

Using whatever yarn you like*, cast on 24 (28) Dscn9038_1stitches.  Row 1 – knit; Row 2 – purl; repeat these two rows until you have approximately 7 (9) inches.  (you can knit in patterns, rows, whetever)  Now continue the same "pattern" for the next 7 (9) inches reversing it to match up the rows. 

Cast off.  Sew up the sides. 

Dscn9160_1Make two pom poms and attach to corners.  Wear with pleasure and see how you make people smile!

*For Children’s I use two strands together of Red Heart yarn (4ply worsted) for Women’s I like Lion Brand Homespun.
