I’ve never been a big Valentine’s Day person, but I’ll take any excuse to knit up something new. The Be Mine Valentine’s Hat is one that practically designed itself once I got to knitting. Simple colorwork creates the illusion of hearts in the main body of the hat, and the colorblock/colordipped look is topped off with a fun pompom. (See? I’m sticking to my word of making more pompoms this year.)

The Be Mine Valentine’s Hat is a super quick knit (yes, even with that colorwork) because it’s made for sturdy worsted yarn and larger needles (size 10). So there’s still time to make one (or one for you and one for a friend) before Valentine’s Day comes! It can also be modified to fit whatever yarn you have in your stash between now and Valentine’s Day. I made a second sample with variegated red yarn that was more like roving, and made a two-color pompom. And one Raveler has already made their own adaptation with smaller yarn and both pink and red colorwork hearts.
