Fernhill is the February Hat you know and love, but somehow even squishier! The textured stitches look great in Germantown Bulky, and the patterns (worked from a chart) are repetitive and easy to memorize.

This hat begins with a provisional cast on, then a brim is worked in a K1, P1 Ribbing. After the brim is complete, the body and crown of the hat are worked in a texture stripe pattern from charts. A pom pom and custom leather tag complete the look.

The Body Chart is worked 8 times around, and the Crown Chart is worked 4 times around.
