The Proof Hat is a traditional beanie with graphic modern texture. The tubular double-ribbed brim flows into a motif of crisscrossing forked ribs. Channels of cartridge rib add a second layer of deep texture to create a striking unisex cap. Pair this satisfying knit with the Proof Scarf for a matched set or work up a bevy of hats to try out all the shades of Arbor that speak to you.

32 stitches & 32 rounds = 4” in Proof Chart pattern with Size A needle(s), unstretched after blocking

Needles

Size A (for Main Fabric)
One 16” circular needle and one set of double-pointed needles (DPNs) in size needed to obtain gauge listed
Suggested Size: 4½ mm (US 7)

Size B (for Ribbing)
One 16” circular needle, two sizes smaller than Size A
Suggested Size: 3¾ mm (US 5)

Size C (optional; for Tubular Cast On only)
One 16” circular needle, one size smaller than Size B
Suggested Size: 3½ mm (US 4)

Note: If you have adjusted the needle size to obtain the correct gauge, it may or may not be necessary to make a matching adjustment to the needle size used for Tubular Cast On, due to variances in individual work. You may wish to test your chosen cast-on method on your swatch.
32” circular needle can be used instead of 16” circular and DPNs if using the Magic Loop method for working small circumferences in the round.*
