Peargirl Oregon’s Old Growth Hat Knitting Pattern

Peargirl Knits

My friend’s sweetheart works in an Oregon Mill in very cold temperatures during the winter. He requested a soft, thick cabled earflap hat to keep his head and ears warm during his long hours on the job. I chose a simple 8 stitch cable that reminds me of the gnarly bark on Oregon’s old growth fir trees. Baby alpaca was a natural choice for softness. Both the cabled texture and bulky yarn provide added warmth for the coldest winter days.
