My Simple Hat

Read on to see who gets this hat!

I received a colorful and fun pom pom from Marta of Little Noodlewebs fame. And finally found yarn that was awesome enough to bring out all the colors in it!

I found this Hedgehog Fibres Chubby (super bulky) in colorway Oracle at Eat. Sleep. Knit. It had all the colors from the pom pom—black, orange, bright pink and lime green!


The pattern was a very simple, FREE top-down knit hat pattern, My Simple Hat, by Emily Novikov. It knit up in a couple of hours and I sewed the pom pom snap to the top so it could be removed for cleaning if need be. Here it is!

This hat made me smile as I knitted it and the pom pom really is the icing on the cake. My project notes are here.


I will be gifting this to Deb, a worker at my mother’s assisted living place who sends me photos of mom participating in all their activities. Since I can’t visit much (I live 4.5 hours away), the photos provide me reassurance that my mother is cared for and happy. I think this hat suits Deb’s fun-loving personality and provides a way for me to show my appreciation for her thoughtfulness.

So Marta’s sweet gift in sending me the pom pom inspired me to knit a hat to show Deb how much I appreciate her. How awesome is that?

    It is indeed nice to have someone there that keeps you in touch with your Mom. Deb sounds like a wonderful and caring person. And that Pompom!! 🙂 It will keep anyone and everyone smiling. It is stunning, and super cheerful. I love this hat!
