A hat for outdoor pursuits in cold weather, this is knit nice and firmly in a super-soft, super-warm alpaca yarn with lots of negative ease so that it stays put on your head, but won't make it itch! All this is topped off with my signature cool crown decreases that are worked into the pattern to make an attractive finish. Knit in the round from the bottom up,
Pattern contains Charts and written instructions for main pattern and crown decreases. There is an option included for a slouchy version (yarn requirements are for beanie as shown; allow extra yarn if wishing to work a slouchy version). Links to tutorials for suggested cast on.
