Farigaig is a warm winter hat, with a nice textured pattern using reverse stockinette, cables and garter stitch. It looks good with either a solid or variagated yarn. It’s worked in the round and you can add a huge pom pom to make it more fun.
The samples were made using two skeins of Drops Eskimo or one skein of Drops Andes.
