I think the real star of this pattern is the variegated yarn. It adds interest to a simple pattern and shows off the cute little pompom on top. Really nice basic pattern.

This shouldn't take much time at all to make. It would be a great last minute stocking stuffer or one of those "Oh, my goodness, it's cold this weekend!" projects. I am thinking of making it in a solid color rather than the variegated yarn it's shown in. I think this is going to be one of those "go to" patterns when I need something quick to work on.
