A TopKnotch Hat PDF
A TopKnotch Hat from Lisa McFetridge is slouchy and sports different blocks of color that make for a great “Stash Buster” ! Knit in the round with a turned-under hem, it uses up those small, leftover balls of yarn. Any colors work, so make brave choices! Make it bold with a TopKnot or play it safe with a plain top. Unisex in 3 sizes, Child, Small Adult and Large Adult. The hat can be made longer by adding more rounds of each color.
