Complete your alpine ensemble with the High Pines Cowl’s counterpart, the High Pines Hat. Branching half-twisted rib and shifting knit and purl texture take full advantage of Arbor’s springy construction, resulting in harmonic stitchwork resembling a jovial woodland scene. Precisely placed decreases help the motifs converge seamlessly at the crown — a star to adorn one’s head.


This hat is worked circularly from the bottom up.


  • 2 skeins Brooklyn Tweed Arbor (100% American Targhee wool; 145 yards/50 grams)

Size A (for Main Fabric)

  • One 16” circular needle and one set of double-pointed needles (DPNs)* in size needed to obtain gauge listed
  • Suggested Size: 4 mm (US 6)

Size B (for Ribbing)

  • One 16” circular needle*, two sizes smaller than Size A
  • Suggested Size: 3½ mm (US 4)

*A 32” circular needle can be used instead of 16” circular and DPNs if using the Magic Loop method for working small circumferences in the round.
