Ordinary Magic Hat is available as an individual pattern or as an eBook with the matching Ordinary Magic Mitts.

Knitting – a ball of yarn and two sticks. Something that people have done throughout the ages. Out of necessity and out of love. The stitches, in all their basic simplicity, forming creations that are either purely functional or very complex, and each decidedly unique. Knitting is both a very practical skill and a creative one. The everyday, ordinary magic.

This ageless hat will be just the thing to add to your wardrobe.
The gentle curves of the cables offer a comforting classic touch, while the ribbing at the sides adds a nice bit of texture and ensures a snug fit.

Knit together with the Ordinary Magic Mitts for a matching set!
