Stay warm when you hit the slopes with the Snowball Colorwork Cap Kit featured in knitscene Winter 2016! The pattern calls for four skeins of Dale Garn Hegre—navy, off-white, red, and heather gray. Knit the earflaps in garter stitch first, then knit them onto the first row in-the-round to start the main part of the hat. The cute colorwork chart is simple enough even for a colorwork beginner. Use the remainder of the yarn to create the large pom-pom for the top of the hat and to braid for the earflap ties. An adorable hat with fun features made simple!

Size is not accurate
The pattern is very easy, and it knits up very quickly. However the size was way too small for an adult female. I will make it again but use 5 mm needles to get the proper size for an adult. Review by Catherine Cape Breton (Posted on 12/3/2016)
