Basic Bulky Knit Hat Pattern, with instructions for rows and rounds.
This hat is the ultimate last minute gift! It can be made in 2 or 3 hours with large knitting needles. Whether you prefer knitting in rows or rounds, you can easily whip up this hat. By tripling strands of thinner yarn to create the chunky weight, you also have the ability to magically turn any solid colored yarns into your own custom gradient blend!
