Pony Tail Ski Hat

I have thick hair and, as I refer to it, a "big ass" head. That said, I am growing my pony tail one more time to donate it to Pantene for wigs for women.
However, it has been YEARS since I wore a pony tail in the winter and my ears are already cold. This lead me to make this hat.
You can tell  by the stray piece of yarn across my head,
the hat wasn't done yet.
It is bulky and warm. I wanted to make it as warm as possible, using the yarn I had on hand, so I added more yarn to make the turn up brim wider. This way, my ears will be covered by two thicknesses.

 I like the corkscrews, they just add some fun to the hat.

If you prefer a simpler design around the opening, I have included a picture and pattern for what I call “loopies.”
Then, of course, you might wish yours to be plain, I have included a picture of the hat before it was finished, at the top of this page, to show off the plain pattern.

 If you would like to buy the pattern, it is available for $ 3.99 in my Ravelry Store, "The Fur~Babies Momma."
 ***100% of the purchase price for the pattern goes to no-kill animal shelters in Western New York and in my home state of Indiana.***

  1. This is a cute hat. I too have donated to Pantene for wigs because they will take less than Locks for Love. People don't know about Pantene, they seem to just know Locks for Love.


Thank you for taking the time to comment on this post.
