This pattern is knitted sideways on straight needles, and is constructed from a series of panels and finished with Kitchener Stitch. Links to tutorials for prov. cast-on and Kitchener are included.
There are 3 styles of panel in this pattern, allowing you to mix ‘n’ match to create your own style of Hat! There is a regular straight brim panel, which alone would give a beanie style Hat. There is then a soft scalloped edge, which could be used on it’s own or combined with the straight panel for a soft, feminine Hat. The final panel is elongated and is ideal for creating a ear-flap or chullo style! Notes on how to combine the different options to create the Hats shown are included.
Only 2 sizes are included (compared to my regular 3 or more) however a change in gauge, or knitting only 6 panels instead of 7 will give a variety of sizes. Do remember though that row gauge is the key in this pattern to obtaining a good fit.
I’m unable to offer pattern support for my free patterns via Ravelry PM or email - please visit the Wormhead’s Hats group if you have a question about this pattern. Thanks for your understanding!
