There are 4 different styles to choose from when you buy a sports team hat.
1. regular monster
3. popcorn monster
What’s the difference between them?
The difference between a hat with a monster and a hat without one is pretty obvious.
But what’s the difference between popcorn and regular? What’s that even mean?
Popcorn and regular refer to the stitches used to create the hat.
This hat was completed in regular stitch. Knitters call this stitch stockinette but it is the most common stitch used so I call it regular.
This hat was completed in popcorn stitch. Can you see the difference? Regular stitch is more smooth while popcorn stitch is more bumpy. Again knitters will call this the garder stitch but it looks like popcorn to me so that’s what I call it. It’s more fun to say popcorn than garder anyway.
Here is a hat from each of the 4 styles mentioned.
I hope this helps you decide which style of hat to buy. You can always ask questions if you’re still confused.
