I had so much fun creating this hat. It began with the idea of bottom ribbing travelling upwards in a geometric texture. The idea wouldn’t leave me until I knitted it up, so over one weekend I had a rough draft of this hat.

“Diamant” means diamond in Czech. Named for the diamond-shaped geometric texture, this hat is designed to show off a single skein of speckled DK weight yarn, but it would look equally stunning in a solid colour.

The texture is created using a combination of simple two-stitch cables and knit/purl stitches. The pattern gives instructions for both working with and without a cable needle.

To make the most of the pattern use yarn with good stitch definition.

Sizes: Teen, (Adult S/M, Adult L/XL), to fit head circumference of about 51 (56, 61) cm / 20 (22, 24)“

The smallest size will generally fit an older child, the medium an adult woman, and the large size will make a man’s beanie. But please check the recepient’s head circumeference, these are just guidelines.
