Issue 278 – Toboggan Garter Stitch Hats

I don't know about you, but I am anxiously waiting for spring. But the truth is that we still have some cold days ahead of us. I know that I am still pulling on a hat in the mornings to keep my ears warm.

This garter stitch hat, knit in Tobaggan is a quick and easy remedy to cold ears. Worked either in the round or flat and then seamed up, this hat is a great way to add some color to the last days of your winter wardrobe. Add a pompom to the top to give it an extra sense of whimsy.
