Ahrrr! Pirates hat
Simone Van Iderstine’s Adaptation of “We Call Them Pirates”
The original pattern by Adrian Bizilia may be found at http://www.helloyarn.com
It was love at first sight with Hello Yarn’s “We Call Them Pirates” hat but I didn’t have the weight of yarn or the right size needles suggested so I adapted the pattern for what I had on hand. You don’t really need the 20” circular. You may use double pointed needles instead.
Worsted weight (9 wpi) yarn ~135 yards each of main color (MC) and contrast color
Pictured in Merino Wool and Samoyed worsted from Belfast Mini Mills.
5 mm 20” circular needle
