Pretty lattice-stitch hat with a hemmed band. The stitch patterns are my own dutch-style versions of the classic broderie anglaise (English embroidery) stitch, and use the same techniques along with some new moves.
Hat is worked to a beanie length, but could also be made shorter as a cap.

Construction: Hat is worked seamlessly in the round from bottom to top. The stockinette hem, which begins with a provisional cast on, is joined (3-needle join) with the main hat after the band. The crown is shaped by decreases worked within the stitch pattern which form a beautiful seven-petal flower pattern at the very top.

Yarn: 2 skeins Sunday Knits 5 ply (light worsted weight yarn: 137 yd /125 m to 1.75 oz / 50 g): Eden (merino), Nirvana (merino & cashmere), Angelic (merino & angora) or Brigadoon (merino tweed).
Shown in Nirvana delft.

Substitute any wool or wool blend yarn that works nicely to gauge: 210 yds / 190 m.

Needles: Circular needles (circs) US size 6 / 4 mm for band and 8 / 5 mm for hat, double-pointed needles (dpn) size 8 / 5 mm for crown, and a second set of circs in size 6 (or a smaller size) for joining hem to hat. For both sizes, pointy-tipped needles are recommended.

Adjust needle sizes if necessary to obtain the correct gauge.

Notions: Stitch marker, tapestry needle.

Techniques used: Provisional cast on, 3-needle join for hem, knit-long and knit-below stitches.

Pattern includes: Written instructions, stitch patterns in both written and charted formats, link to a photo-tutorial demonstrating the stitch pattern techniques.
