Flat Knit Thick & Quick Hat Pattern- an easy hat that knits up in 3 hours using Lion Brand Wool-Ease Thick & Quick yarn!
Lion Brand's Wool-East Thick & Quick is one of my favorite yarns. When I saw that there was a pretty, Mandala self-striping version, I had to try it out!
This ear flap hat is a fun and fast knit that can be completed in an evening. The hat is knit flat and then seamed when finished.
