Hannah Bos in a Red Wool Hat



Actress Hannah Bos and her giant head of hair wear this simple hat. Pattern of two knit, two purl for the brim and then knit the rest of the way up. I found the pattern on YouTube. If you haven't seen Hannah in her hit show Mimi and flo you've got to check it out. Hilarious.
