NOTE: 9/12/23 Alpine Trail was originally designed in Plucky Knitter, Snug. Since this yarn is no longer readily available I knit up a sample in North Bay Fiber Elemental Bulky, and it made the perfect substitute! The new sample inspired me to refresh the pattern, update the layout, and added new photos. I’m in love with my “new” hat!!!

A braided cable adorns the brim of this cleverly constructed hat. Knit in a bulky weight yarn, this is a super fun and quick knit. Topped off with a pom pom, this hat is sure to be a new favorite!
