This hat features a double-thick brim for extra cozy ears and enough slouch to adorably mask even the most ferocious bedhead. Couple that with a simple, sophisticated lace pattern, and a gauge that knits up quick in a silky mohair blend, this might be the most thoughtful hat you’ll ever meet. No wonder it was born in Canada.

Additional Gauge: 18 sts & 21 rows = 4” in Openwork Rib pattern with larger needle, lightly blocked.

Pattern includes complete written instructions, as well as charts for Openwork Rib pattern and crown decreases in each size.

Special Techniques

  • Picking up cast-on edge and knitting together with live stitches to create doubled-thick brim without sewing up.
