Buy this pattern and the baby version in the Ebook and save $ ! :-)

Second installment of my “around the granny square”, the Altay hat features an unusual and fun construction.
Worked around a “granny triangle”, it works up very quickly and is very easily adjustable to fit everybody’s head size.
Optional earflaps can be added.

Instructions are written for 3 weights of yarn,

  • 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.
To me, it’s an ideal pattern to use with handspun yarn !! :-)

Everybody who saw this hat around me so far loved it. My friend asked for one of my samples, and the daycare ladies asked for some too..

I hope your hats will be just as successfull ! I bet you won’t see many similar ones around you.

Oh, one last thing: did I mention they’re FAST to make ?!! One of my testers made hers in 2 hours… :-D
