Please note this is a KNITTING PATTERN ONLY with an intermediate skill level. You will not receive a finished hat. You will receive a downloadable PDF file (in English) that provides some written instructions, a chart for the main body of the hat and a link to a video technique tutorial so you can knit one yourself for an average adult head.
Starting with a fun, corrugated rib brim with stripes that continue into the body of the hat, Joy is packed with elongated stars and little diamonds near the crown to let your spirit shine. You can knit this baby in traditional holiday colors to celebrate the magic of the season, or you can totally switch up your palette and find joy at any time of the year! There also are options to create a scrappy version—just play around with whatever yarn you have in your stash to create a one-of-a-kind beauty for yourself or as a gift!
