Sparkling Pom-Pom Ski / Toboggan Hat

Lion Brand® Wool-Ease® Thick & Quick® - Festive Fur


10 sts = 3½ in. [9 cm], 13 rows = 4 in. [10 cm] in K2, P2 Rib with A. When you match the gauge in a pattern, your project will be the size specified in the pattern and the materials specified in the pattern will be sufficient. The needle or hook size called for in the pattern is based on what the designer used, but it is not unusual for gauge to vary from person to person. If it takes you fewer stitches and rows to make your swatch, try using a smaller size hook or needles; if more stitches and rows, try a larger size hook or needles.

Making a Gauge Swatch


Hat is knitted in one piece, then seamed at back.

With A, cast on 40 sts.
Set-up Row *(K 1, p 1) twice, inc in next st; rep from * to end of row – 48 sts.
Work in K1, P1 Rib for 6 rows.
Next Row (K 2, p 2) across.
Rep last row until piece measures 8½” [21.5 cm] from beginning.
Shape Top
Row 1
(K 2, p2tog) across – 36 sts.
Row 2 (K 1, p 2) across.
Row 3 (K3tog) across – 12 sts.
Cut yarn, leaving a long tail. Pull tail through remaining sts and gather tightly tog. Sew back seam.

Wrap B around the short width of cardboard – the more wraps, the fuller the Pompom will be. Slide a doubled strand of B under center of wraps and knot. Clip loops; remove cardboard. Fluff Pompom and trim ends evenly. Use the ends of the knotted strand to attach Pompom to top of Hat.

Sparkling Pom-Pom Ski / Toboggan Hat Reviewed by Beth Negrey on 2011-02-20 *****
I really like the narrower ribbing for the cuff on this hat. I did, however, knit a few more rows since I like to keep my ears warm!
