Alpine Topper hat pattern Knitting Pattern - Free with yarn purchase
Author: Kendra Rafford
19 (21, 23)" circumference
The alpine topper is the perfect hat to brave the cold. We've used a self-striping bulky wool knit on smaller needles for a dense fabric to keep the wind out. The main body is stranded with super bulky spun merino, creating a sumptuous, soft lining against your head. One of our favorite hats! Some staff have made over 20 of them!
The pattern is now more versatile as well. After a little brainstorming and a little figuring, the pattern now includes a new “slant” (diagonal stripes!) on the Alpine Topper, as well as sizing for a young child. You choose the size and the design. Knit an Alpine Topper with the traditional column design or knit one with the new diagonal design. Check out our topper video below or at: vimeo.com/16678702
