This is the perfect dog lovers toque! There is stranding, so you have to put up with that (sigh) but the frolicking dogs playing on the new spring grass with the puffy clouds floating overhead make it a worthwhile endeavor! Because of the height of the chart and the gauge of yarn I used, this particular pattern will only work for pre-teen through adult sizing. If you want a smaller hat and want to keep the integrity of the chart, I would recommend using dk or even fingering weight yarn, and the appropriately sized needles and keeping everything else the same.

Here it is, just a week shy of Christmas, and I’m adding a pattern! Never fear, this uses worsted weight yarn and works up fast. This year I’ve been really interested in stranding and I love snowmen, so I thought I’d make my own chart and my hat. I downloaded a chart from Pinterest for the red hat. I’m sorry – I don’t remember which! Just enter knit snowflake chart in the search bar and you’ll get so many cool options. I included the picture so you can see the versatility of the basic hat pattern. So here it is, just in time for Santa’s visit!
