This is my first knitted hat. It's also my first slip stitch pattern. It's also my first successful pompom. It was very quick to make. I used the pattern here:
but be aware that in rounds 8 and 9 there is a typo and the asterisk should be after the first slipped stitch. Also, the pattern uses worsted weight on size 10.5s, and even 9s were giving me too lose a fabric, so I used 8s and cast on 90. I also added some ribbing. I used some leftover Karabella Aurora 8 for the gray and a self striping mohair/acrylic blend, Dolce Mohair Rigato, for the pink and purple.
And look! it fits over my gigantic hair!
