The traveling twisted stitches that circle the head in this hat are reminiscent of kelp plants gently moving in the water.

The following skills and stitches are used to knit this hat:

  • twisted stitches
  • cable twists (using two stitches)
  • bobbles (instructions given in pattern)
  • basic decreases (p2tog)

The stitch motif is both charted and written out.

The fit of this hat is slouchy but adjustable. The brim can be adjusted for a snugger fit by using a smaller needle for the twisted rib, and the length of the hat can be adjusted by adding or subtracting plain rounds once the stitch pattern section has been completed.

Finished sizes:
Circumference: 18.5 (21.5, 24) in./46.5 (53.5, 60) cm
Length: 11 (12, 12) in./28 (30.5, 30.5) cm
