Super Chunky Swirl Hat Knitting Pattern- a deceptively easy design topped with a furry pom pom!
If you’re a beginner, don’t be intimidated by this swirl hat- it’s actually really easy to knit! The swirl design is created by wrapping the yarn over the front of the needle and then knitting two stitches together. Once you get the hang of it, it’s simple! Best of all, this hat knits up in a few hours thanks to the large needles and super bulky yarn.
I bought these Faux Fur pom poms from Amazon and I use them for so many of my knitted projects. The price is great and the pom poms are natural looking and so soft! I love the way the furry texture compliments chunky knits.
