Little girls (and big girls too!) will love this whimsical, loopy hat, and the dangling pompon coordinated with the embroidered loops adds to the fun. For a colourful addition to your winter hat collection, you can add a few rows to this hat before the loop pattern begins, to provide extra ear coverage. Use a variegated yarn and a complimentary solid colour as shown in this example, or contrast your colours for an even loopier effect.
