Notes From the Designer:
•Multiple sizes for a snug fit!
•Worked in the round.
•Folded brim for a polished look.
•Quick and simple pattern.
•A little bit of texture, a little bit of smooth, and a whole lot of softness.
My inspiration for this hat design was the yarn itself. The Alpaca Silk yarn is so soft and cuddly and I wanted the hat to have the same feel. I chose a simple repeating stitch pattern to create some texture while maintaining the soft and cozy feel of the yarn. To complete the design, I chose to use a simple folded brim styling that would hug the wearer gently.

I have recently used this pattern to make children's chemo caps for a local charity. I've been using up a variety of light weight yarns left from larger projects. This pattern works up quickly, easily and beautifully in yarns ranging from fingering to DK. It has a wonderful texture making it a distinctive departure from the usual "beanies" I see donated to this charity. Thanks!
Although I mostly knit, this looks like something I can do!
Great pattern, especially nice having several sizes. When I make it I will send you a picture.
Love this pattern
