Winter Hat Series - Season One

I’ve always loved herringbone stitch. I’ve always drooled over skeins of Malabrigo Rasta. I’ve always wanted to combine the two. Enter: Loey. It is perfect for you texture-obsessed, chunky- hat-wearers out there. A day project that makes for the perfect gift…or a present to yourself!


  1. This hat is cast on at the brim. Decreases are made towards the top and the final stitches are cinched together with the remaining yarn.
  2. Please read the detailed notes provided about herringbone stitch. You should be comfortable with the stitch pattern and the skills required to begin a new row in the round before proceeding.
  3. Place a stitch marker to help you recognize the beginning of a new row. If your stitch markers do not fit on the larger needles, you can make one with some smooth scrap yarn.
  4. I attached a fur pom to the top of my hat. If you want to make a yarn pom, you will need an additional skein of yarn.
