Much like its sibling vest pattern from our Fall 17 collection, the Hunter Hat features a welted rib motif that transforms into rope cables and chevrons that work their way up toward the crown. Choose your favorite shade of fingering weight Peerie yarn, and then select your favorite of the two brim stitch options provided — 1x1 ribbing or half-twisted ribbing — before diving into the motif which can be worked from either written or charted directions. Soon enough you’ll have a deliciously soft and squishably textured hat to wear through cold seasons for years to come.

Please note: the stitch patterns used for this accessory include written as well as charted instructions.


Hat is worked circularly from bottom up.
