Like a rampart protects an ancient castle, the deep texture and double-layered crown of this top-down hat protects the wearer from the winter cold. Because sizing is based on a target measurement rather than stitch gauge, the pattern can be used with any yarn and hook combination you find pleasing.

Directions also included for making an extra warm, double crown version and for using a brushed felting technique like that used on Swedish Lovikka Mittens

With many thanks to Cecelia1 and Absinthia who were terrific testers!
