This design was born of a serendipitous moment of these two lovely yarns snuggling up next to each other in my yarn basket. Day after day I would glance their way and I just knew they needed to be knit up together into a soft, warm hat! Minted is surprisingly quick to knit, and even more delightful to wear!

FINISHED MEASUREMENTS
Circumference - 19”/48 cm
Height - 9”/23 cm If you would like more length in the hat for larger heads or a slouchier fit, many knitters have found that adding one extra repeat of the cable pattern does the trick perfectly!
To Fit: 19.5-22.5”/49.5-57 cm head circumference
