DESIGNED BY DEBBIE SULLIVAN
This winter hat is a quick-to-knit project, using just one skein of bulky yarn. It's worked in a warm and dense honeycomb brioche pattern that's also stretchy enough to fit most head sizes. Hanabi means fireworks in Japanese, the inspiration for the multicoloured pom pom. A printable pom pom template is included in the pattern, and a step-by-step photo tutorial is available on our blog.
