The Harvest Season hat is a lightweight beanie, knit in the round from the bottom up with fanciful eyelet repeats that resemble stalks of grain. Ideal for transitional weather, this fun to knit hat provides a nice combination of warmth and ventilation.

This pattern was designed for Apple Oak Fibre Works Alpaca Light yarn, held double. However, it will work with any fingering weight yarn, including sock yarn. A single 100g skein should be sufficient for all sizes. Solid or semi-solid colourways are recommended.

Suitable for advanced beginners upward, this pattern features a (very simple) lace chart. Pattern support for special techniques is provided.
