This hat was inspired by the variety of beautiful agates that can be found in some of the pebbly coves here in downeast Maine. The textural pattern is made up of three colors, but you use only one color at a time with slip and purl stitches. This forms a nice dense brim for extra warmth. The hardest part of this pattern? Deciding on which three colors to use! Great for stash busting!

This pattern is suitable for any knitter who can knit in the round on circular and double pointed needles. The hat is worked from the brim up. The slip stitch brim pattern is written out and is quite easy. The pattern is 2 pages long and has been professionally tech edited and fully test knit to be clear and free of errors.
