Raise a glass to the end of an extraordinary year. Send an encouraging note to someone who has been facing tough odds. Wrap up a little something cosy for someone who could use an extra dose of affection right now.

Cheering means many different things, but it’s always an action of optimism, hope, and love. It’s about raising our spirits, both literally and figuratively.

Designed to bring warmth, comfort and joy wherever it goes, the Cheering Hat features a classic cable and rib panel and a cosy 1x1 twisted rib brim. A perfect blend of traditional and contemporary style, this timeless hat makes a brilliant gift.

Knit in luxurious DK weight yarn, it’s a quick project with a snug but slouchy fit. With four sizes to choose from, this might just become your favourite hat pattern for crossing lots of knit worthy names off your list!
