I designed this hat following an autumn stroll in the woods near my home. The trees are ancient and seem to interweave with each other in an interesting way.

The hat is a tam style with a ribbed section then increased for the main body before decreases at the crown. The sections of stocking stitch become narrower as the hat gets smaller which is representative of the shape of the trees.

It is knitted in the round and comes in three sizes for the brim. It has written and charted instructions.

The hat was knitted in Stylecraft Bellissima (100% acrylic) in colourway Rio Red 3932. It was recently voted Runner Up in a Stylecraft/Knit Now magazine design competition.

Thank you to my tech editor Tabitha Thomas Studio and my test knitters, who helped make this pattern possible.
