It’s just been too long since I published a free pattern! I worked these up using one of my expensive superwash wool yarns and I got two hats with enough to spare to do a yarn pom if I wanted easily. So if you have some of these yarns, get ’em out and let’s get hookin’!!!!
This pattern utilizes the Alpine Stitch, my favorite stitch to showcase hand-dyed yarns when making my hats!
I used some scrap fur to make mini pom poms for these girls, but you could easily make some yarn poms to top them with as well.
1 5.5mm (I) Crochet Hook
