This is a classic hat pattern made with a lovely bold color. I like the ribbing on the bottom edge, which helps keep the edge from rolling and makes it a little more snug. You could add a big pom pom to this hat in the same color or a coordinating one for a fun look.

I love the color of this beanie. The green is so bright and bold. It would really stand out from the white snow on a cold winter day.
