This hat is designed to match the Bosc Scarf.

Inspired by the graceful curves and rich colors of ripe pears, the Bosc Hat’s lush texture is created with surprisingly easy stitches in quick-knit, worsted weight yarn.

Basic cable and lace patterns transition smoothly from a ribbed edging to the beautifully shaped crown of this elegant hat. A gently slouched silhouette frames the face with flattering proportions, making this a great-looking project that will fly off your needles with impressive results.

Shaping is built into the design, and the pattern offers options to knitters with both charted and written instructions, as well as a choice of two sizes.

A note on yarn choices and gauge: If substituting yarns, be careful to make choices that knit up at least 20 sts per 4 inches in stockinette. Even a slightly heavier yarn or small difference in gauge may make your hat quite a bit larger - those few extra stitches do make a difference! Also, as always, knit a swatch, block it and check your gauge.
