This is a really interesting hat. It is simple to make and is rather basic, but the little loop at the top changes it up just enough to grab your attention. It makes it easy to just pull off, and gives it a way to be hung up to dry. You could even make up cute little accessories to add to it for children.

I love this one so much. I'm definitely adding this one to the ever-growing TBK (to be knit) list.
