There are some beautiful spiral hat patterns out there right now, and I have enjoyed knitting many of them. I started dreaming up my own spin on this style a while ago but for the life of me I couldn’t figure out how to get the math right - it took so many failed attempts to get this pattern just right, and I am so happy with it now.

I’ve named this hat after the Gales of November. Each year as winter approaches extreme winds kick up waves on Lake Superior, in some spots sending water churning hundreds of feet up the sides of cliffs along the shore. It’s a beautiful, tumultuous sight to see the waves rolling in over and over.

This hat is knit with Super Bulky yarn.
Shown in Malabrigo Rasta. Instructions
for adapting the pattern to light super
bulky yarn like Noventa are included on
the back page.

The pattern comes in 3 cast on size
options, and several height options,
sizing from toddler, child to adult s/m
and adult l/xl.
