With Cloudline we challenged ourselves to design the perfect “first hat” pattern for a new knitter while also creating an appealing project for seasoned knitters as well. This hat is knit using only basic techniques: the knit stitch, the purl stitch, and the knit-2-together decrease and is the perfect project for practicing circular knitting (or for whipping up last-minute gifts!).

Cloudline’s bi-colored marl fabric is created by holding two strands of fingering-weight yarn together as you knit.

The finished hat is fully reversible, featuring a distinctively different look on each side.

This pattern is part of our BT by Brooklyn Tweed pattern line; a collection of skill-accessible knitting patterns written in a concise, visually appealing way. Each pattern offers a beginner-friendly entry point into the larger world of Brooklyn Tweed yarns and patterns. Projects you make from BT by Brooklyn Tweed will be straightforward to knit and fun to wear!
