The LARINDA HAT is a texture-packed little head warmer, featuring bobbles, twisted stitches and a chevron motif. These elements combine to create a whimsical hat that is as enjoyable to make as it is to wear. Available in sizes from Baby to M/L Adult, you can knit one for all the people in your life! Pair it with the Larinda Cowl or Larinda Shawl for a matched set.

Baby (Toddler/Child, S/M Adult, M/L Adult)

Approximately 14.5” (16.25”, 18”, 20”) in circumference

Approximately 6.5” (6.75”, 7.5”, 7.5”) in height

The Larinda Hat fits close to the head, like a cap, with little to no ease. The brim and body of the hat should fit snugly without being tight, and the crown should have a slight amount of room and no slouch.


DK or light worsted weight wool or wool blend, approximately 105 (130, 170, 190) yards.

For best results, choose a yarn with good stitch definition.
