With distinctive shaping and “sock-style” finishing at the crown, the Graff hat has a contemporary, flattering shape. The panels of moss stitch and bold braided cables in Graff are accentuated in Peerie, a worsted-spun fingering-weight yarn of 100% Merino wool.

Knit on circular needles from the bottom up, Graff includes instructions for both a classic beanie and a slouchy style. Artful decreases frame the center cables, which are grafted together at the top using Joinery Bind Off.

Please note: the stitch patterns for this garment are charted only.
