This Women’s Button Trapper Hat has been a long time coming. I got so many requests from readers who loved the Baby Trapper Hat, but couldn’t seem to find room on my calendar for it. That is why I love the end of December and the month of January: new beginnings. It’s a perfect time to get settle down after the busy holiday and work on things you haven’t had time for. This hat is worked with two strands, so it’s fun, chunky and really warm.
