Alpine Topper Hat

And it's still snowing across the country.  They are expecting a foot of snow in parts of New England and the morning news showed Chicago being hit with another fierce storm.  We even have some snow in the Lake Tahoe area - here's me out for a walk up at Glacier Point overlooking the mountains:


There's still time to knit hats, scarves and gloves!  Here is my Alpine Topper that I made in one day; I  bought this pattern and the yarn at Halcyon Yarns in Maine when I was there last year.



This was made with Brown Sheep's Lamb's Pride Bulky as the main color and the very soft Schulana Cortina  for the contrasting color which also makes a nice soft lining inside:


That's it for now - head over to Tami's blog to see what other folks are up to.


  1. We were supposed to go up to Squaw this past weekend but we have all been sick. Had to stay home in the sunshine. Looks beautiful. Last time we went there was hardly any snow.

    Your hat is adorable. Love the braid topper.

  2. I love the look of this hat!
