An easy one-skein project with great practicality for fall weather! The hat will keep your head warm, but if a cold wind comes up, you simply untie the top, and pull it down to cover ears and neck! When the sun comes out again, you can continue to wear as a neck warmer or pull back up into hat position in a snap. This simple project is a great introduction to the technique of Slip Stitch Crochet, which yields a very soft and stretchy fabric, resembling knitted ribbing. The large hook size makes the project easy to manage, and quick to work.
