Space Buns refers to the popular hairstyle of pigtail buns, worn with or without French braids leading into them from the nape of the neck or from the temples. So the braided cables on this hat can be worn facing front or back, according to your personal preference. Instructions for making removable fuzzy pompoms are included at the end. This hat can be worn with one or two pompoms, or without the pompoms altogether. Additionally, it can be worn with the brim folded up, or worn down for a slouchy look. It will be your go-to hat because it is so versatile. The original was knit with 100% organic worsted cotton. But any heavy worsted yarn will do. Always check your gauge!
