Intercoastal is a bulky weight hat pattern with infinite colour possibilities. The simple geometric colourwork pattern is easy to follow and lets the yarn shine, making it perfect for specialty and hand-dyed skeins. Pair a variegated yarn with a solid for a subtle contrast that breaks up the colour changes in the yarn, or use two solids for a more striking look.

From east to west, Intercoastal will keep your head warm all the way from Cape Spear to Port aux Basques through the wildest Newfoundland weather!

SIZING
Size
Youth [Adult S/M, Adult M/L] to fit 49.5 [54.5, 59] cm/19.5 [21.5, 23.25]” head circumference

Finished Dimensions
48.5 [53.5, 58] cm/19 [21, 22.75]” circumference, 24.5 [25, 25.5] cm/9.75 [9.75, 10]” height

Because of the fabric density created by the colourwork pattern, this hat does not have much stretch and is therefore intended to be worn with only a small amount of negative ease (approximately 1 cm/0.5”). If in between sizes, choose the smaller size.
