The Montreal Set was inspired by my best friend. She’s living in Canada and needs really warm accessories for the cold, cold winters there. It includes hat, cowl and mittens.

The hat is worked from the top down, so it can be easily adjusted for length. The top is worked in stockinette stitch to show off a variegated yarn. The border has really big, short cables in a plain yarn.

It is designed to be worn with slight negative ease (1-2 cm 0.5-1’’).

Finished hat circumference: 49 cm (19.25’’) and 55 cm (21.5’’)

Gauge: 13 sts and 16 rnds = 10 cm (4”) in stockinette stitch in the round after blocking

or 60 m / 70 yd (85 m / 95 yd) of MC and 35 m / 40 yd (40 m / 45 yd) of CC super bulky yarn of your choice
(Designer’s note: I only needed 1 ball of MC for size S/M, but I used absolutely everything of it.)
8 mm (US 11) 40 cm (16’’) circular needle or a size required to get gauge
(Designer’s note: I’m a loose knitter, so you may want to try bigger needles if you aren’t.)

1 stitch marker

The pattern has been professionally tech-edited and test-knit.
