This is a great hat - and a quick and easy knit. I designed the original hat to wear while hiking the Appalachian Trail, and the name stuck! It looks good on men or women.
I like to use a smooth, solid color or tweed yarn and although I usually knit it with my handspun, it looks great in any solid color bulky weight.
Gauge: 3.5 stitches per inch in pattern stitch. Sizes: Adult medium, but can easily be sized up or down. Needle size: US size 9 & 10 (5.5 & 6 mm) Yarns: Bulky weight solid color - approximately 90- 130 yards Skill level: Beginner (Knit and purl in the round; decreasing). A perfect first hat!
