Inspired by the colors and markings of the downy woodpecker, Downy is a stranded-color toque topped with a pom-pom. It’s knit in four colors of Buachaille by Kate Davies Designs, a DK weight wool, and is worked bottom up, in the round.

This hat is designed to be worn with a small amount of negative ease—choose a size that is 1–2 inches/2.5–5 cm smaller than the wearer’s actual head circumference. The sample hat in the photos is Size 3 and was modeled with approximately 1 inch/2.5 cm negative ease.
