The Pint Size Ale is a hat based on the main cable pattern in the Scottish Ale Sweater.  Knit from the bottom up on circular needles with worsted weight yarn, this attractive hat has extra warmth thanks to the cables.  The pattern is totally written out and is also charted, so whether you like to follow written instructions or if you love charts, this pattern will work for you!
