LOOM KNIT SNOWMAN HAT

Cheerful Loom Knit Frosty Hat


     I made this hat yesterday for my four year old nephew who said he wanted a "snowman hat" for Christmas.  I was really pleased with how it turned out especially, since I had tried some techniques I hadn't done before...vertical stripes, checkered stitches, etc.  It took more planning and thought than some of my previous patterns.  The final result was worth it and I can't wait to give it to my nephew.  I will be designing a matching scarf to go with it so, if you like this pattern, check back for the scarf.
