The PASTELLA hat pattern is a fast and fun knit, perfect for a little spring or summer hat. Having these wonderful pastel colors in Milburn DK ( by Eden Cottage Yarns) in my stash, I was looking for a matching pattern. Isn’t it stunning, how 15% of shimmering silk can make the difference!

Come find me over on Instagram!

There is a seamless transition from ribbed brim to lace pattern and the crown decreases are part of the pattern too. The PASTELLA hat is worked up quickly and fully reversible.
Pattern can be used for a lovely beanie in adult or children size, or if you like for a matching cowl too. The PASTELLA pattern is like three patterns in one!

Use neutral pastel colors, tonal/ solid or variegated / gradient. The pattern is so addictive, I could not resist to knit three hats in one go!
The pattern is worked in the round from the bottom up. Directions are given for two sizes and written in parentheses as follows: Child (Adult, Cowl).
