NKEIRUKA is a beautifully textured, beginner-friendly, knit-look double brim hat made from a rectangle.
You can customize your hat by attaching a pom pom. The crochet pattern is written in 9 sizes so everybody gets a hat!
Each hat is crocheted flat (turned rows), then the sides are joined using a special technique and finally the crown is gathered. A pom pom could be attached if desired.
The pattern is accompanied by a video tutorial, view here
