This really is a great "go-to" hat, perfect for chilly nights or bad hair days. It is crocheted using beautiful Rios. Made by Malabrigo, Rios is a 100% superwash Merino wool that is hand-dyed in dramatic, dynamic colorways. The hat is worked in the round from the brim upward to the top. The body of the hat is a 3-round repeat. You can leave it plain or top it off with a fur pom pom or make a pom pom out of the Rios. The finished hat measures approximately 16.75" (unstretched) in circumference and 8.75" high. The Go-To Hat can be machine washed and dried flat. Designed by Alessandra Hayden, this project has been assigned a skill level of intermediate by Malabrigo.
