The Guthrie hat is a fun colorwork beanie for the whole family! Written for a range of sizes from children to XL adult this pattern is written in both worsted and sport weight versions, making it a great stash buster! Options are also included for a slouchier or closer fit. Samples pictured both feature the slouchy fit.

For the worsted weight version (oatmeal color sample) I chose Rosa Pomar Brusca for the main color and Spincycle Dream State for the colorwork.

The sport weight version (black sample) uses Rosa Pomar Vovó for the main color and Spincycle Dyed in the Wool for the colorwork.

You can find the Guthrie sweater pattern here if you would like to make a matching set!
