Inspired by the lush imagery of J.R.R. Tolkien’s The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings series, the Greyhaven Hat features an arched, leafy stitch pattern worked seamlessly from the bottom up. Integrated shaping creates a soft, slouchy silhouette that continues into the beautifully patterned crown of this pretty toque. An easily memorized stitch pattern and just one skein of the decadent Primo Worsted yarn make this hat a luxurious treat to knit.
The Greyhaven Hat pattern may be purchased alone or as part of a two-piece set including the Greyhaven Cowl. Both the hat and cowl patterns offer charted as well as written instructions.

“Guided by the Lonely Star, beyond the utmost harbour-bar, I’ll find the heavens fair and free, and beaches of the Starlit Sea. Ship my ship! I seek the West, and fields and mountains ever blest. Farewell to Middle-earth at last. I see the star above my mast!”
