Alpstein is a stranded colorwork hat with a design that incorporates slipped, as well as purl stitches to create an interesting transition between colors.

Worked from the top-down and in the round, it is a great way to combine and use up stash leftovers.

Instructions are given in written abbreviated form.

The stranded colorwork section is given in chart only.

Pattern backstory and insights can be found here.
