A classic hat knitted in the round from the brim up.

An eye-catching “tassel” stitch is knitted with a simple method requiring no extra needles. Pattern includes written and charted instructions, and tips on knitting the “tassel stitch”.

The flat crown gives Skeppe a relaxed, slouchy finish.

Optional tassels are attached with twisted cord, once knitting is complete. Step by step instructions for the tassel & twisted cord are included.

Skeppe is a fun knit, ideal for the adventurous beginner.
