Troll knits earflap hat fit for Yoopers


This Troll* knitted an earflap hat fit for Yoopers.** And fit for anyone else struggling to keep a head warm in cold winter weather. This hat won’t make you look good.  It will just make you feel good.

The pattern is another Amy E. Anderson pattern: Durango. It’s available for download at Anderson’s Ravelry store.  And Blackberry Ridge kits it up with their wonderful worsted, shown here. My only modifications were to use applied I-cord edging and to add the braids (using up some of the gobs of extra yarn included in the kit).

Nothing like a bit of easy fair isle to snaz up a hat.

* A “troll” lives under a bridge, so that would be someone who lives in Michigan’s lower peninsula, below the Mackinac Bridge.

** A “Yooper” lives in Michigan’s upper peninsula, the U.P.
