Cabled Fiber & Yarn Knit- Hurricane Hill Ski Hat
Hurricane Hill Ski Hat by MarySue French
Inspired by the view from Hurricane Hill in the Olympic National Park this hat invokes memories of sledding & tobogganing, snowshoeing, skiing or just sitting with a cup of hot chocolate taking in the view on a crisp winter day. A simple snowflake pattern and a double brim make this hat warm and cozy and a fun knit. Knit with 2 contrasting colors of worsted weight yarn this hat will knit up quickly and you can choose to omit the tassel if you prefer.
