Note: You can make this hat with exactly one skein of the recommended yarn if you get the right gauge. Also, if your brim measures 2” before you’ve completed the specified number of rows, end the brim at that point and go on. Your hat will still come out the right size and it will help you stretch your yardage a bit.
Chunky Alpaca yarn worked over braided cables makes this hat extra cushy and warm. The generous gauge ensures the project will knit up quickly so you can have one to match all your winter coats. It also makes it a great handmade gift – which is a good thing because all of your friends are gonna want one.
