The Howelsen Hill is a sweet little garter and stockinette stitch cap finished with three or four tiny buttons. The pattern is simple and quick to knit. US raised and produced Fancy Tiger Heirloom Romney gives a classic look to this darling hat.
The finished measurements are 20” to fit an average lady’s head. Notes are included to adjust the fit as needed.
This pattern uses about 1/2 of a skein of Heirloom Romney--it pairs perfectly with the Quandary Peak mittens--you can use the leftovers from your Howelsen Hill Cap as your mitten contrast color.
