I’ve long been a fan of Brown Sheep Lamb’s Pride, a cozy singles (one-ply) blend of wool and mohair. It’s a heavy worsted weight, but it’s plenty lofty, so it crochets up into a warm hat that’s not too stiff. Work it in exuberant hues or in your favorite solid color. The unisex style will be a hit with everyone! The waffle stitch pattern uses a combination of chains, single and double crochet stitches, and front post stitches to create the texture.
