Three options in three sizes let you tailor this versatile topper for anyone on your list, incorporating the brim and earflaps as you wish. The contrasting color evokes the sheepskin trapper hats, while the lovely kettle-dyed wool prevents the hat from evoking Elmer Fudd. A clever increasing method, working a half-double and front-post double into the same stitch, gives subtle shaping to this classic hat.

Leaf Peeper Hat Review by Patricia Monday

Really neat, made this for a couple of people during the winter - the one on the right, that is. Not difficult.
