As with the Mix & Match Sweater this hat comes with a variety of options on how to knit it. There are two options for the brim (a regular brim and a dipped brim lower at the back), two options for the body of the hat (stockinette and a texture pattern), and two options for the crown (simple decreases and a version with a knotted I-Cord on the top). Further, the hat comes with the option of knitting it out of Worsted Weight, DK Weight or Fingering Weight held double. All of these options mean you can knit this pattern several times and have very different looking outcomes with every iteration, giving you a unique hat each time.

Please note there is a matching Sweater pattern to this sweater as well the Child Mix & Match Sweater - so if you purchase the patterns together as an E-Book you will be saving 20% off the total price compared to purchasing the patterns separately.

What you will need:

Yarn – 100g Worsted weight Yarn (approx. 200m/220 yds); or 100g DK weight Yarn (approx. 210m/230yds). Yarn used in sample – Makershaven Yarns DK in the Layla Colourway (211m/231yds) – Alternatively you can also use fingering weight yarn held double.
