The Mawson hat pattern is now available for purchase as a convenient kit on our webstore. Each kit contains enough pre-wound Shelter yarn to knit the project and a digital copy of the pattern, available here.

A simple and versatile cap in Shelter or Arbor makes a quick gift knit or instantly adds a new dimension to your cold-weather wardrobe. This unisex hat can be worked to beanie length or extended as a watch cap — wear it with a folded brim or with slouchy insouciance as whim dictates. Mawson’s fabric of single rib begins with a 1x1 Ribbed Cable Cast On, which mimics the look of a tubular cast-on without the extra effort. Clever double decreases at the crown make the hat completely reversible. Instructions are also included for a half-twisted stitch modification.

Pattern includes both charted and written instructions.
