I have a pretty well known fondness for winter hats. And not just plain hats. We're talking owls, sharks, jesters, bright colors, pompoms, jingle bells. Even though I already have enough hats to wear a different one every day for over a week, I couldn't resist making another. Especially since I had a ball of bulky weight yarn hanging around. This was a simple pattern, just a long rectangle folded in half and seemed up the sides, but I'm pretty pleased with the result. It's brightly colored and super warm, just right for brightening up a Michigan winter day.
