Flight of Fancy Hat Knitting Pattern

I have spent the majority of my life doing creative work – as an artist, writer, and entrepreneur. Daydreaming isn’t out of the question for me! To me, flights of fancy – although often seen as unrealistic and overly imaginative – are the seeds of amazing possibilities! This hat is knit in the round, with worsted weight yarn, and the design uses stranded knitting. The hat be made with a pom-pom, or without. 
Prefer a tassel? Go for it!

Although I have shared the brand/colors of the yarn I used, I strongly encourage you to use your imagination to come up with the color combinations that will bring your flights of fancy to life!

LEVEL

Intermediate: This pattern uses stranded

knitting techniques and is knit in the round.

The hat is worked from the bottom up,

finishing at the center of the crown.

The pattern is broken into sections: Brim,

Lice Pattern, Striped Section, Flight of Fancy

Pattern (colorwork section), and Crown.

Additional embellishments, such as pompom,

tassels, or other fun accoutrements

are entirely up to you!
