The Woodsman Hat...

“The Woodsman Hat” is sure to keep ears toasty warm this fall and winter season.  It’s made with Bernat’s Chunky yarn - #6 super bulky.  And, it works up really fast.  This definitely will make my to-do list for last minute gifts since it took me less than 30 minutes to complete.

Cute, simple and fast = perfect project!!!

I used an 8.0mm hook and Bernat Soft Chunky yarn in White, Soft Taupe and Dark Taupe.  I did not have a full skein of any of the colors I used.  I worked my row colors based on my availability of how much of each yarn I had on hand.  I'm really happy with the end result of this hat.  The colors just reminded me of the woods/mountains - I grew up in the mountains.

I made my "Woodsman Hat" to fit a 19" - 21" head circumference.  You can adjust to any desired size. 

I started with Soft Taupe and made 10 DC stitches into a magic ring.  I continued making increase rounds until I reached the diameter I needed.  I then completed rounds of DC stitches until I was almost to my desired length.  I then used the White yarn and completed a round of Front Post Double Crochet stitches and Back Post Double Crochet stitches.  My final round was single crochet stitches.  Fasten off and weave ends.

For the pompom, I held all 3 color strands together and wrapped around 3 of my fingers 15-20 times, tied a double-knot in the center and trimmed the ends.  I used the tapestry needle to attach the pompom to the top of the hat.
