Hey Everyone! Sorry it took me forever (like a year) to get my tutorial photos together and up here. Had a lot going on...
I call it the "Acorn and Pompom" hat because I think it kind of looks like an acorn, and, well, check out those pompoms. I created this hat for a friend who sent me a page from a magazine of a woman wearing a similar hat that was selling for $200. $200?! The challenge was on. I used a bulky acrylic yarn that was very wool-like in its texture rather than wool (due to an allergy issue). I knit the flap first in garter, about 4 inches, then changed to stockinette for the top of the hat and made 8 cables around, narrowing to the center, about 7 inches. Then I folded up the flap.
