In 2015 I designed the original hat called Fairytale Winter. I always loved this hat due to the deep folded brim and the sweet lace design on the body of the hat. This winter I keep finding myself wearing my old Fairytale Winter hat day after day so I decided to revisit the pattern and give it a refresh. It’s a great hat to knit and an even better hat to wear. It’s also the perfect gift knit.
New things about the hat? I updated the pattern and I changed the lace chart to include some sweet bobbles in a couple of key spots. The pattern includes an exclusive video tutorial link for the bobble. The yarn is now our Barrett Wool Co. Home Worsted in the Picket Fence colorway which is the creamiest shade of white. I have always wanted a winter-white hat and now I have one! The pattern is written for a 20-inch circumference at the brim. The hat is very stretchy and will fit a wide variety of sizes, smaller and larger.
The other new thing about the hat is that it is topped with our brand new Luxury Vegan Poms!! We are so excited to bring these new poms to our Fairytale Winter Hat Kits. The Luxury Vegan Poms are luxurious, to say the least. They are big and fluffy and they are a good high-end companion to our Snap-On poms. The new vegan poms are attached with ribbons and tied on the inside.
A quick tip for attaching the larger vegan poms, when sending the ribbon through over the gathered hole make sure the two ribbons are entering at a good inch to inch and a half apart. This will secure and balance the pom so it isn’t so floppy on the top of the hat.
You will love our new Luxury Vegan Poms! For now, they are only available with the Fairytale Winter Hat Kits. We stuck to mostly neutral colors of grays, creams, whites, and shades of tan. Although there is a beautiful rosie pink pom included.
