The soft waves of seafoam stitch are perfect for showing off colour-changing or variegated yarns. Worked here in worsted-weight yarn, they make for a comfortably drapey sideways-knit slouch, extending naturally from the simple garter-stitch brim. ??

The pattern includes an extra-long rasta version (not shown), with three sizes written for each version, and provides charts as well as written instructions. Tutorials for provisional cast-on and Kitchener stitch in garter pattern will boost your skills.

In einer Abwandlung des Meerschaum-Wellenmusters gestrickt, fällt diese Mütze weich und lässt sich gut drapieren. Marina ist genau das Richtige bei fülligem Haar oder Rasta-Locken und für all diejenigen, die ihre Mützen gerne etwas lockerer fallend tragen!
