If you purchased a copy of The Bartek prior to February 20, 2013 there are some minor adjustments to the pattern. Everything else remains the same.

Changes are in bold:

Row 60: stitch count should be (90)
Row 62: P1, sl 1 rtfm,
After row 69, Cut tail and string through last 6 stitches.

The Bartek features multiple cable bands in varied width and one large cable twist that runs vertically up the side.

This hat is designed for an advanced knitter who has experience with cables and knitting into the back of stitches. An interesting pattern to knit because it isn’t overly repetitive.

** Please take the time to knit a stockinette swatch to check the gauge of this project. I tend to knit quite tight and checking your gauge may save you a lot of time and frustration.

This hat is designed to fit an adult man. It is made to fit an approximate 22” head circumference.
