Leaf Peeper Hats from Interweave Crochet Fall 2009
This cozy hat is offered in three styles and three sizes; easily tailored to anyone on your list. The different brim and ear flap options allow for complete customization. The clever and subtle shaping with half-double crochet and front-post double crochets worked into the same stitch gives a gentle curve with interesting texture.
