I have always knit hats with traditional brims that are as long in the front as they are in the back, but I find myself pulling the brim down at the back, to better cover my neck and ears, and then I end up having to fold up the brim at the front, as it starts to slip into my eyes. With this in mind, I set out to design a hat that has a longer brim at the back than at the front, so it will keep your neck and ears toasty without slipping down in the front.

Knit in a plush alpaca blend yarn grown and milled in Rollyview, Alberta, at a gauge that produces a dense, cushy fabric, this hat will keep your ears warm even in a blustery Edmonton winter.
