Pattern Description:

Here's the thing. Some days, when I have to walk to the subway, then from the subway to work and it's oh-dark-thirty and the wind is knifing through the street canyons, I need a hat. A no-nonsense, seriously warm hat. This is it. The Betsy is double thick and reversible, made in double knit ribbing. It's alpaca, which is warmer than wool and softer. It's got a very generous brim, so I can pull it right down around my face on days when I feel like my eyelashes are frosting up. And it's soft, skwooshy, bright and cheerful, to boot.
