|School Daze is a cabled pom pom hat with some old
school charm, hence the name.
It’s not made in the conventional way of making a hat.
You actually start with the cabeling and add the pom pom
and ribbing band later. This is probably because it started
its life as a cabled cowl…but I thought it was kinda
boring so bound it off and made a hat instead!
Much more fun and super cute to boot!
