Your doll will love to bundle up in her cozy new Whirlwind Hat to play out in the snow! This beautiful hat has two options. You can make an easy beanie hat, or slouch hat with a brim and tassels. You will love the textured pattern that whirls from the very top of the hat all the way down to the bottom. If you want to make a beanie hat you will need one color of yarn, and if you want to make the slouch hat with a brim and tassels you will need two colors of yarn. The length of the hat is easy to adjust to your liking. You can add less or more rnds to make it longer or shorter.

I made this hat in a variegated yarn and the FP ridges showed up really well. I made the beanie version and I knitted a pompom from a feathers type of yarn. It was a quick and easy pattern which fits my AG doll really well.
