The Altay hat is crocheted sideways around a granny triangle, with an unusual and fun construction.
It works up very quickly and is very easily adjustable to fit everybody’s head size. Optional earflaps can be added.

So fast to make, fun and one-of-a-kind, it is easily adjustable to make it with any weight of yarn.

This pattern was updated Sept 2018 to align format and layout with my more recent patterns.

Instructions are written for 3 weights of yarn so as to achieve 3 sizes (S-M-L):

  • worsted weight (such as Kureyon) and a 5 mm hook
  • OR aranweight (such as Fashion Trend) and a 6 mm hook
  • OR bulky weight (such as Silenzio) and a 6 mm hook

Notes are added on how to customize super easily the instructions to adapt this pattern to virtually ANY yarn.
An ideal pattern to use with handspun yarn !!

This design was published in the book “1000 fabulous knit and crochet hats” by Annie Modesitt and won the 5th place.

Ce patron est maintenant aussi disponible en FRANÇAIS
Un bonnet crocheté de façon inédite autour d’un triangle “granny”, en mettant à profit les propriétés spécifiques du crochet avec ses points de hauteur différentes.
Le patron peut se crocheter avec 3 grosseurs de fils, pour 3 tailles de S à M.
J’explique aussi comment le réaliser avec n’importe quelle grosseur de laine.
