Classic Octopus Hat Giveaway

If you've listened to the last episode of the podcast, you'll know that one of my projects on the needles was the Classic Octopus Hat by Molly Kent. My version is knit in the Pembroke worsted base from The Yarn Collective in the colorway Copper Agate, a gift from the lovely folks at I finished and blocked the hat this past weekend and even added my very first pom pom!

I made a modified version by Raveler Quaere that turns the original beanie pattern into a slouchy hat. This version is great; the only change I would make if I knit it again is to do more knit rows in between the decrease rows at the end. The hat isn't as slouchy as I like (I love slouchy), and has a rather square top. That's why I added the pom pom - I'm normally not a pom pom person, but I think this makes the hat! I used this pom pom tutorial, and my pom pom turned out great on the first try.

As noted in the photo above, I'm giving away both yarn colors as well as the pattern for this hat. donated the yarn, and I will gift the pattern to the lucky winner. So how do you win?
