Worked in the round from the bottom to the crown, the Rutted Hat pairs two strands of yarn held together for thickness with an easily memorized textured stitch pattern. The rustic alpaca-wool yarn is soft and warm on one’s head, and this fabric is reversible. For a fun finishing touch, add a pom-pom!
