Adult Bulky Beanie

It was suggested to me to make a pom pom hat, like the red infant hat.  I thought it was a fun idea, but was going to wait until the next hat season to make it.  That was until I received this in the mail:
Swirls and Sprinkles: free crochet bulky adult hat pattern
My very own goodies!
Yep, my mom stuffed some homespun into a goody box that was for the kids.  *I* got some goodies, too.  :)  (Thanks mom!)  It was such a wonderful surprise.
Since I had some new yarn, I decided to sit down and work something up.  I decided not to put poms on this hat, but you could EASILY add them.
I LOVE how this yarn worked up.  The colors are gorgeous.  The hat itself works up really quickly and is easy to make.  This is what I came up with.

  2. Can't wait to try this with some Homespun I just got here in Australia :) Winter's coming!

  3. thank you for the free patterns, I bought some wool and wanted to try to learn how to make things, to deal with my stress. and not to think about the pain I am always having.The doctor said to find a hobby.
    Thank you again.

    1. You are very welcome for the patterns! I find crochet to be a great stress buster! Helps take your mind off of things for a while. Good luck, and hope feel better soon!! :)

  4. Love the pattern. I have some Homespun in my stash but decided to use Lion Brand Hometown USA to match a scarf I made my son and it turned out great! Thanks for a great pattern!

    1. So glad you enjoyed the pattern. Thanks for telling me. :)

  5. What color Homespun was used for the hat in the pic? It's beautiful...

    1. I believe the color is "quartz"...I'd have to check, but I am out of town at the moment.
