Complete with mini red bobbles and an original twist-stitch holly leaf motif, this hat is guaranteed to make your holiday extra jolly. The Carolina Holly hat is worked in the round from the bottom up. It has a double-thick brim created by knitting the live stitches together with the cast-on edge. The body of the hat features small bobbles and twisted stitches to create a holly leaf motif.
