Delightful in its simplicity and mishmash of soft textures, this stylish but classic hat is sure to become a standby, particularly when worked in oh-so- agreeable neutrals (though a bright pompom on the gray base would be cheery and very fashionable at the moment!) This alpaca bamboo yarn with its fascinating chainette texture is both soft and rustic, and delightfully drapey (but be sure to block your swatch and use that gauge, or your hat may grow more than you want!)

(Requires 1-2 skeins of Chalet. You may be able to get by with 1, but I would recommend having a second available just in case. The Malabrigo Worsted is used for the pompom.)
