I feel so great about this hat! It is my first completely successful hat, and I love wearing it! The alpaca is super cozy and warm, and the fit is great. I have very short hair, so nice fitting hats are very important. Hope you like it!
This is a great pattern for beginning hat knitters. It is knit flat, but it gives you a lot of practice with picking up stitches and mattress stitch. You can find this pattern in Boutique Knits by Laura Irwin
