Looking for a simple hat with lots of options? Fall Harvest Hat, the companion to my Three Fine Daughters of Farmer Brown is just that…one pattern, five variations, with sizes from newborn to adult. It’s the perfect pattern for solids and tonals, and the variety of knit, purl, and slip stitch combinations means you might just find something to tame the wildest variegated!

Like the Three Fine Daughters cowl, Fall Harvest features two parent stitch patterns (Farmer Brown and Mrs. Brown) and three variations (their daughters Nellie, Dottie, and Becca).

Approximate age and head circumference:
Small Newborn: 13” (33 cm), 80 yds (75 m)
0-3 months: 14.75” (37 cm), 85 yds (80 m)
3-6 months: 16.5” (41 cm), 105 yds (95 m)
6-12 months: 18” (45 cm), 125 yds (115 m)
Small child: 19.75” (49 cm), 155 yds (140 m)
Large child/small adult: 21.25” (53 cm), 180 yds (165 m)
Large adult: 23” (57 cm), 205 yds (190 m)
