This gorgeous merino/angora blend hat is as soft and fluffy as a baby bunny. The simple stitch compliments these yarn characteristics and doesn’t get lost in the fluff. A close fitting band hugs the ears and frames the face. Coupled with a slouchy crown, you get a look that says, “I’m classic and I’m cool.”

If you are careful in the joining the second ball of yarn and in weaving in ends, you will have an entirely reversible hat. Both sides are pretty, but I think I prefer the inside / purl side. It is nubby and looks like a small berry bramble.
