Kirsten Hat

A playful tasseled hat, crocheted in a beautiful rich color, is sure to brighten even the grayest day this winter. It's quick, too! Double crochet, a large hook, and a lovely wool all combine to create a delicious fabric that proves something doesn't need to be difficult to make a statement.

If you're not familiar with making tassels, pompoms may be substituted at the ends. (Tassels are much less work than pompoms, though! Give it a shot!)
