Méabh’s Hat was designed to match Méabh’s Cardigan. It is a cozy beanie style hat to keep little heads warm in the colder weather. Designed for my youngest who is modeling her cardigan and hat beautifully here. The yarn in the sample is from Green Elephant Hand Dyed Yarns, an Irish Indie dyer, colourway Gentle Savage.

A matching cardigan is also available and two skeins of yarn will knit both a cardigan and a hat in the four smallest sizes.

This hat is worked in the round from the bottom up. A twisted rib brim incorporates the decorative stitching before the cable flows into the hat. The hat is shaped incorporating the cable details.
