My Gentle Protector is a simple hat that is designed to showcase a few of your most precious buttons. Worked with two different yarns held together, it knits up quickly and is luxuriously soft, gently protecting your ears from the cold.

The brim on this hat is stretchy, so it can fit a wide range of head sizes.

I used slightly less than one ball of Drops Alpaca and slightly more than half a ball of Rowan Kidsilk Haze.
