pattern:
USED: 2 skeins of bernat alpaca chunky (i would NOT suggest this yarn to anyone, it sheds like a horror) or any chunky yarn about the same gauge:
• 3-1/2 ounces (100 grams) 120 yards
• 4"=15 stitches on size 10 needles

-CO 80 sts on size 4 circs(this was for a friend with thick hair and a big head, so i would suggest starting with any needle/hat band that you know works for your head)
-K10rows in 2x2 ribbing
-Switch to size 8 circs K1 M1 all the way around
Knit 3 rows
*P15 K1 *
Repeat between asteriks for infinity rows. basically you are making a verical rib with the knit stitch
work for about 8-12" depending on how big you want it.
k2tog all around for 2 rows
break yarn leaving a 12" tail. weave tail through live sts and pull tight.

sew on a big fat pom pom (i used patons shetland chunky for it)

go and be contrary and find a garden
