This hat was knitted by Cassandra Harada for Blacker Swan. We were thrilled when Cassandra offered to let us share her pattern on our website. Enjoy!

To Fit:

This hat will fit most sized heads, but if a size adjustment is required, please accomplish this via a larger gauge.

Main Colour: Sheep’s Sorrel (oxblood); 1 ball

This hat is knitted in the round with stranded colourwork throughout. This pattern uses the Italian cast on method but would still work using another method.
