Knit sideways (just for fun!) with short-rows at the crown that suggest the gussets of a brown paperbag. With a deep cuff over the ears to double the thick garter-stitch fabric, and made of light, fluffy, super-soft Maxima merino, this hat is both light and warm. I-cord details at the edge and fold of the cuff keep it shapely, not sloppy. A real one-skein wonder!
