Winter Penny Stitch Along Week Seven is the Winter Hat. My mom used to knit us all hats and mittens every year, I did the same for my kids and now I do it for the grands. You know your kids/grandkids aren't little kids anymore when they DON'T want pompoms on their hats! It makes me a little sad when they get to that stage. So I made the pompom on this hat a big one and bushy with French knots! Check out the FaceBook group later today for a quick demo on how to make not loopy French knots.
