Yay, the pattern for the Altay hat is now available ! :-D

Second installment of my ‚??around the granny square‚?Ě series, the Altay hat features an unusual and fun construction.
Worked around a ‚??granny triangle‚?Ě, it works up very quickly and is very easily adjustable to fit everybody‚??s head size. Optional earflaps can be added.

Instructions are written for 2 weights of yarn:
* worsted weight (such as Kureyon) and a 5 mm hook
* OR aran/bulky weight (such as Fashion Trend/ Silenzio) and a 6 mm hook

Notes are added on how to customize super easily the instructions to adapt this pattern to virtually ANY yarn. To me, it‚??s an ideal pattern to use with handspun yarn !! :-)

Everybody who saw this hat around me so far loved it. My friend asked for one of my samples, and the daycare ladies asked for some too.. Oh, one last thing: did I mention they‚??re FAST to make ?!! One of my testers made hers in 2 hours‚?¶ :-D

Price: $5.00

Thanks so much to my testers Ballee and Sylvana… Look at those pretty hats Sylvana crocheted ! (and check out Balle’s hat on her blog or Flickr set) :-D

And, last but not least… the lucky winner of this month’s Fiber Giveaway is : Gretchen (brownbear on rav). Congrats !! I’m emailing you to get your adress details ! :-)
