Knit Pattern: Squishy Chullo Hat

The Squishy Chullo Hat is the partner to the Squishy Mittens.
This fun winter accessory is sure to keep your ears warm and your spirits high!

The Squishy Chullo Hat pattern features lofty cables atop a purled field, a seed stitch brim, and fun earflaps to make sure the wind doesn’t sneak in. The hat is knit by first making the earflaps, and then casting on stitches to create the brim. Braids and pompoms are optional, but they really do add an extra bit of fun to this really squishy hat.
