10.11.17: This pattern has now been updated to join the new Kate Oates line. It includes new photography and a new 2-color version along with metric conversions and a much larger chart. Purchasing this pattern will also provide you access to the previous version which has the smaller chart and therefore is fewer pages for those who wish to print.

This slouchy style hat suits man or woman, boy or girl; fold up the ribbed brim for more of a beanie fit. It is worked from brim to crown with Fair Isle stranded colorwork in the body that extends into the crown shaping. The design features diamonds and triangles in a stitch pattern also featured in the Brochan (for children) and Brecken (for adults, located in the Grown book) Sweaters. Modeled in Adult, both in a 2-color and 3-color version, and in Child with the Eliot Zip-Up (sweater pattern sold separately). This pattern is recommended for intermediate level knitters with some prior colorwork experience.
