Free Knitting Patterns: Bazinga Hat

Happy WIP (work in progress) Wednesday! 
I just finished up this adorable hat this morning, so here it is as a free knitting pattern!

The hat features Plymouth Bazinga yarn. It's a bulky weight thick and thin yarn and comes in bright fun colors that are self striping. To me, it's a perfect yarn for knitting hats.
