You’ll Need

  • 120-170 yards / 110-155 meters worsted or aran weight yarn
  • size US 6-8 (4-5mm) needles for working flat, or size to get gauge for small, medium, or large height
  • a crochet hook and scrap yarn
  • an extra circular needle (any length) the same size or smaller by up to a few sizes
  • a cable needle (or work cables without one)
  • a blunt yarn needle

The samples are in: Harrisville Highland (Mustard, 100% wool, worsted weight, 1 skein); Cestari Traditional Collection, 2 Ply (Natural Light Gray, 100% wool, aran weight, 1 skein).

Gauge, in garter stitch (blocked):

  • small height: 20 sts, 33 rows per 4 inches / 10 cm
  • medium height: 18 sts, 31 rows per 4 inches / 10 cm
  • large height: 16 sts, 29 rows per 4 inches / 10 cm

The three gauges, making three heights, will make for varying amounts of slouchiness.

  • small height = approx 8 inches / 20 cm
  • medium height = approx 8.5 inches / 21.5 cm
  • large height = approx 9 inches / 23 cm

Circumference can be adjusted and custom fit to your head. The pattern gives measurements for small/medium/large circumferences for each gauge option, and also give notes on customizing your size.

Extra Notes

  • Yardage depends on size and gauge; less yardage for smaller height and circumference sizes, more yardage for larger sizes.

  • The whole pattern is written and charted.

  • There are technique instructions and/or links to photo/video tutorials for all techniques used (provisional cast-on, cables, short rows).

  • The simple cables used are easy to work without a cable needle.
