Ponytail Hat from Greenwood Hill Farm
This ponytail hat (also for messy buns!) is a go-to hat for active women who hate stretching out hats or cramming their ponytail or bun down into their head. It is designed with Greenwood Hill Farms Worsted - with no dyes or chemicals used in processing. The contrast striping keeps it interesting and is a great way for beginners to learn how to knit with contrast colors.
Greenwood Hill Farm's design has been converted into our Tutorial Design format, so our integrated skills videos will teach you new skills, such as the long-tail cast-on, working in the round, changing colors, and decreasing the crown of a hat. You should already know how to knit, purl, and bind off.
This product is a digital download and digital access to the design.
