Knitting Pattern: Alpine Hat

Knitting Pattern: Alpine Hat


Designed by Angela Westover

Gansey-style knitting has always been a treat for me. The simple mix of purls and knits creates a pattern of peaks and valleys, echoing a majestic mountain terrain in a slightly slouchy beanie hat that’s lightweight and perfect for crisp autumn days.

Sizes Included in Pattern: One Size Fits Most Adults
