Bathurst is a soft and slightly slouchy hat with a simple and interesting stitch pattern. Yarn over increases create right- angled triangles that are then pleated, creating a cushy and airy double layered fabric. The crown of the hat is worked in simple stockinette with a quickly gathered crown.
The main body of the hat is worked flat, with ribbed edges and buttonholes, then joined into the round for the crown.
