J.R.R. Tolkien’s Middle-earth universe have been an inspiration for many artists throughout the world. Here is my hommage to these fascinating stories: Quendi Hat. “Quendi” was the name given by the Elves to their own kind. If the Elves are your favorite Middle-earth creatures, you will love this cabled slouchy hat.

Hat is knitted in one piece in the round using the 16”/40 cm circular needles.
One size to (rule them all :) fit an average adult head. Finished size of band is 17”/43 cm (fits average adult head 20-22”/51-56 cm), length approx. 10.5”/26 cm.
