I have been featured in the Christmas Countdown Blog Hop. Please follow the instructions below to get a free PDF of this pattern. Edit-This event is over. This pattern can still be viewed for free below, or you may purchase an ad-free pdf from Ravelry, for a small fee.

I have used Lion Brand Wool-ease many times in the past but, I had never really worked with the Thick n Quick line, until I designed the Bulky Ribbed Cowl. I really loved how it turned out, and I knew I wanted to work with it again. Recently, I came up with the idea for this hat. I knew the Thick n Quick would be perfect for it. At last, I was able to use the rest of this that was left in my stash.

I think this hat would pair nicely with the Bulky Ribbed Cowl. The pom pom can be left off, if preferred, but I feel that the pom pom gives off more winter vibes. Right now, it is still really warm where I live, but it won’t be long before the cold arrives. And this hat is sure to keep you warm with it’s bulky guage. This really is the perfect hat to throw on for a snow day.

Materials Needed:

10 mm hook

1 skein, Lion Brand Wool Ease Thick & Quick, in color Fisherman

premade fur pom pom



Stitches Used:


sc =single crochet

Additional Terms

Gauge: 4 ½ cr-sc/ 8 rows =4 inches

Size: Adult Additional Notes: The bottom ribbing is worked back and forth in rows, then joined and seamed up the side. The body is then worked in spirals around the edge of the ribbing. Because it is worked in spirals, it is easy to lose track of the beginning of a row. Use a stitch marker or scrap yarn in the first stitch to mark.
