TaraDiddle Hat Pattern: Digital Download

As Cornelius Fudge puts it in J.K. Rowling’s Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix: “‘We haven’t got time to listen to more taradiddles, I’m afraid, Dumbledore.’”, the word TaraDiddle means a silly fib, or pretentious nonsense.
I’m hoping you’ll find the hat just as fun to knit as word TaraDiddle is to say - and that’s no lie!!
The pattern is a fast knit with easy to remember repeats, making it great for travel knitting or when you’re looking to kick back and Knitflix & Chill. Plus, the individual sets of written instructions for both fingering weight & DK weight yarn, for which the details of each are outlined below, gives you lots of options so you can knit the hat you love.
