This hat was one of my early forays into crochet design, worked up in the wonderfully squishy and dense Alpine Stitch! The hat comes down over the back of the neck and over the ears, with a dense stitch pattern to keep the wind away and the sizing runs a touch large, to go over headphones, ponytails, and hair buns! It starts at the crown with a crochet magic loop, then increases out to the full head circumference. The Alpine Stitch tends to curl, so a few rows of single and double crochet round out the bottom rim.

Yarn used for both samples is a Merino Wool. Size Large is shown using a DK weight wool; while size Small is shown using Fingering-weight yarn held double. Any DK weight or Light Worsted Wool should work up well as a substitute!
