Thanks to girlwhopurls for the beautiful modelled photos - and of course a thank you to everyone that lends theire photos! =)

From the pattern:

β€œThis is a simple yet cool looking brimmed hat, that can be used both as a cap and as a hat. On cold days the ribbed band can be pulled down over the ears for extra warmth! Make sure you make one in a colour you know you get to keep for yourself! lol

The brim is knit first and then the hat is knit top-down.

Materials needed: - 100 gr/240 m DK weight yarn. I used New Lanark Donegal Silketweed for a large hat and two threads thin wool/fingering weight held together for a medium sized hat.

  • 4 DPNs, size 4 mm.
  • 3 mm DPNs will be needed to attach the brim. Possibly also a small crochet-hook.
  • 4 mm circular needles, 40 cm and 80 cm.
  • 3 mm circular needle, 40 cm.
  • Scrap yarn as stitchmarkers and st-holders.
  • A plastic brim, cut out of a large plastic bottle. Plastic canvas might also work. Templates for both a Large and a Medium sized brim can be found on the last page in the pattern.
  • Thin elastic thread for the band - optional.

If you want to make one for a friend that does not knit – that`s fine! =)

Photos can be found on my website:


  1. I have been informed about a typo in the info: It says: β€œ4DPNs, size 4mm. 3 med mer DPNs might be needed to attach the brim”. It should of course be β€œ3 mm DPNs might be needed to attach the brim.” lol

  2. When starting at Step 3: Cast on 3 stitches on 4 mm DPNs!

  3. Step 4: Row 1 should read: (k2, p2t) till end of row, and NOT (k1, p2t) till end of row…
