The Vermonter by Abi Gregorio is a fantastic unisex vintage-style toque / ski cap that knits up at lightning speed on 8.0mm needles with super-bulky yarn. Stylish and playful, this hat will keep you warm and cozy all winter long.  A great idea for holiday gift giving!  We have lots of yarns in store that would be perfect for this (Blue Sky Alpacas Bulky, Cascade Lana Grande, Brown Sheep Burly Spun, etc.).  I’m just about to cast one on with the current super-bulky yarn of my affection – Cascade Magnum – and will post store sample pics early next week.
Note: Pom-pom is made using the palm of your hand – click here for a  video tutorial.
