I used the leftover yarn from my Aster Flower Scarf to make this beanie. One skein of Wool and the Gang Crazy Sexy Wool and one skein of We Are Knitters Wool made one beanie and one cowl.
This hat was a little too big for me. If I had to do it again, I probably would only cast on 32st.
On a circular needle, I cast on 36 st.
Round 1-10: knit 1×1 ribbing
Round 11-26: knit
Leave a long enough tail so you can string the tail through all the stitch loops and pull tight to close the hat. I topped it off with Bernat pompom.
