Kendal’s distinctive slip stitch pattern combines two shades of sumptuous Whitfell DK into a rugged and warm hat.
Perfect for wearing low over your ears as you’re striding the fells.
Worked from the brim to the interestingly shaped crown using a rhythmic stitch pattern, this hat is a delight to knit. The
slip stitch pattern creates a thick and cosy fabric, perfect for keeping the cold winter weather at bay.

This hat comes in three generous sizes, and the length is easy to adjust should you wish to make your hat slightly
slouchier. Experiment with colour combinations, pairing neutral shades for a more subtle look or bold contrasting
colours for a statement hat.
