I am lucky to have a mountain view from my kitchen window. Among those mountains, which are often covered in snow in the winter, are the Four Peaks. Devils Peak is one of them, standing an impressive 1,587m above sea level.

Devils Peak Beanie is worked from the bottom up, beginning with a simple two by two rib and working towards the top with four rows of double moss stitch zig-zags. Once those zig-zag peaks are formed you simply start your crown decreases, then bind off and you’re done! It’s a very quick and simple, toasty warm hat.
