Free Pattern: Bulky Ear Flap Hat
|The Lamb's Pride Bulky yarn comes in beautiful colors.
I finally finished rewriting my Asheville hat pattern, for use with bulky yarn. This item is man-sized, so it will probably fit very loosely if made for a woman. (I'll probably wear the one shown here, though, if we have a cold winter--or if I can't find a willing male family member or friend eager to wear this item with its orchid accents). Actually, I'm longing for an opportunity to wear a warm, wooly hat in charming Asheville (in the North Carolina mountains), but my weekends are still taken up with football games. Of course, this hat would be just the thing for sitting on the bleachers at an evening game in crisp, cool November.

My original pattern includes instructions for a fleecy lining. Since the Lamb's Pride wool I used here is so thick and warm, I didn't add the lining here (or include instructions for the lining with this pattern). To download the PDF for the Bulky Asheville Hat click here or go to my Free page.
I've also been finishing up some other projects this week and contemplating casting on some small Christmas gifts.
