"A colour-worked beanie, with optional pom pom at the top. This pattern is knitted in the round on a circular needle (or DPNs) but it can be adapted to knit flat and seamed up. It features a star and snowflake colour-work design that reaches up towards the crown with hidden shaping in the pattern and a wide ribbed band with a turn up."
