This pattern is available for free.

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 provisional 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 its 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!
