This pattern is available for C$4.99.
Knit up in Rancho Tranquilo Bulky Alpaca yarn, ‘Rosemary’ features a braided brim with a textured motif over the body of the hat. The braid is knit first, the stitches of the body are picked up along the selvage edge and worked to an invisibly decreasing crown. The “button” is made from a small I-cord, but could be replaced with a button of your choice. Not only is this design attractive, it takes advantage of the warmth and drape of alpaca fiber, situating the dense braid over the ears!
