Following the hat trend in this newly cold winter, here is a hat you can start working on for when that cold weather does finally come. It is stretchy and looks good with or without a pompom. I partially followed this pattern from rivalry but edited it to my head size.
I followed the pattern on my first attempt at this hat and it ended up accidentally being a bun hat, so instead I sewed up the bun hole and threw on a pompom to hide the change in stitches. For my second attempt, I just started by chaining enough to go from the crown of my head to where I wanted the hat to end and accounted for the flap.
