Winter is coming…
That’s always true whether you live in Westeros, the Free Cities… or here on Earth.

This Game of Thrones / House Stark inspired beanie has been designed in a fine gauge merino to accommodate the detailed lettering on the front face.

The beanie is fully lined and reversible - so you can do the fanboi thing or flip it inside out when you just want to go incognito.

important - TIGHT gauge is a feature of this pattern, in order to have a proper sized hat with the cast on stitches. The reason there are so many stitches is that the writing takes up half the stitch count, so to keep it all at the front of the hat where it can be read easily, you need to use tiny stitches - otherwise the finished hat will be massive. SO - if you can’t get gauge with the recommended yarn and needles, use smaller needles and try laceweight yarn instead.

FINISHED SIZE
The hat is “one size” for adults and will stretch to comfortably fit most adult heads. There may be a degree of slouch at the crown depending how far back on the head it is worn.
