Topper Time Fast Approaching

2210000P-F alpine-topper-homepage-halcyon-beth-gwynn-susan-small

The chilly mornings and cool nights of early fall in Maine remind us “topper time” is fast approaching. That’s Alpine Topper time of course. With its superior warmth and smashing good looks this pattern (free with yarn purchase) is the ideal hat to battle the cold in style.

Putting the extreme practicality of the Alpine Topper hat pattern  aside, it’s just pure fun to make. To top it off (no pun intended) it’s a super quick project – whip one up in just one night. If you love color be careful, knitting Alpine Toppers is addictive. You’ll love choosing just the right self striping bulky yarn and pairing it with a solid color super bulky yarn. Color, color, color… oh the possibilities. New yarns and new colors mean new combinations every year.

You’ll notice my name as the Alpine Topper’s designer. I loved designing it and I love knitting them. I’m a confirmed topper addict. I’ve knit 20 toppers and still going strong. There’s always a color combination waiting to come together in my next topper. The immediate gratification for a color and fiber fanatic is overwhelming. So be warned, you might soon become an addict too.

We know the possible combinations can be overwhelming. Do you choose [Sorry, item discontinued or temporarily out of stock] , Plymouth Gina Chunky Yarn (both self striping) or Malabrigo Mecha Yarn(multi-color kettle dyed) for the main color and then which color of [Sorry, item discontinued or temporarily out of stock]  looks best as the accent liner? So this year we’re helping you narrow down the choices by periodically posting topper combos. You’ll need just one skein of each.
