Volund Hat


When I finished this hat last week, I was excited to know that I would be able to wear it during this latest cold spell.  The pom-pom was a gift a few years ago and I pondered on what hat to make.  When I saw this pattern trending on Ravelry I knew that my pom-pom would have a future home.



I used left over fingering-weight wools from stash to make my hat.  Whenever I use deep stash yarn I feel like the project is 'free'.  I know I know, I bought the yarn at one time so it isn't technically free but you get the feeling I'm talking about.  I am using up scraps!



My alterations were few.  I made the brim four inches instead of one inch so I could fold the brim over and have a slightly slouchy fit for the pom-pom.
