Growlers are large bottles for toting fresh beer from your favorite tap to your home. Economical, intelligent, fun, and functional, these bottles can be found all over Portland, OR. I couldn’t think of a better name for this hat which was inspired by all of the adjectives I used to describe the bottles. This hat features easy to work blocks of knit and purl patterning and takes advantage of the lovely variegation of the Lilliput Simple Sock yarn. Grab a growler and get started on your own Growler hat to wear while on your way to pick up more beer.
