My friend Patricia made this hat out of Plymouth Baby Alpaca Tweed in the colorway 100 which goes with every jacket I own. It is my favorite hat, in part because, it is 100% baby alpaca which I love!
The Wurm hat in the above picture is available on Ravelry by Katharina Knopp. This is a free pattern with over 13,500 projects being knit by fellow knitters. I have knit this hat with Misti Chunky, Plymouth Grande, and Cascade Chunky and all work well and are lovely to wear. If you knit this hat, you or a lucky loved one are going to enjoy it for years to come!

We've been seeing faux-fur pom poms everywhere lately—they're so cute! They add a touch of chic to any knit hat pattern.
Shop owner Kelley figured out how to make faux-fur pom poms at home, easily and inexpensively, with faux fur from the fabric store and items she had around the house. She's so clever.
Here's a video of the process.
I discovered the Norrland Hat pattern on Ravelry and decided to take on the challenge. I love the trees and snowflakes, and I have never done colorwork and cables at the same time. Since I love learning new things, I bought the pattern immediately and cast on.
I made some modifications, including turning the hat into a slouch instead of a beanie, and I wanted to explain those in case you want to modify your project, too.
