Th­ese pom-pom hats from Rico have a se­cret, but you’ll have to wait un­til night­fall to find out what it is! Thanks to a strand of fine fi­bre­glass thread that you’d hardly no­tice in day­light, cre­ative Glüh­würm­chen from Rico re­flects when a light is shone on it, mak­ing what­ever you knit from it glim­mer and shine. This great hat de­sign also in­cor­po­rates one the stitches of the year – brioche stitch. It’s fan­tas­ti­cally sat­is­fy­ing to work and once you have the hang of it, can cre­ate some tremen­dous colour ef­fects. What­ever yarn you choose, have fun mix­ing and match­ing the yarns with con­trast­ing pom-poms, and watch as your lit­tle ones light up the night in this cool hat pat­tern!
