Overlooking the rolling hills of the North Okanagan, Rocky Ridge Park sits atop a basalt knoll, formed during the area’s great volcanic era. Winding trails run along ancient lava flow wall, adorned with ponderosa pine, sagebrush, and wild flowers; and home to hawks, magpies, lizards, and even the endangered rubber boa.

Rocky Ridge is a classically textured lightweight hat, sized for the whole family.


Sizes: 1 (2, 3, 4)
To fit: baby/toddler (child, adult S/M, adult L/XL)
Finished Circ: 15½ (17, 19, 20½)” / 39 (42.5, 47.5, 52)cm

Slouchy Length: 8½ (9, 9½, 10)” / 21.5 (22.5, 24, 25)cm

All measurements are taken unstretched, after blocking. Choose a finished circumference that allows for 10–20% (2–5” / 5–12.5cm, depending on size) of negative ease, depending on personal preference.


28 stitches over 4” / 10cm in pattern, with larger needles, after blocking.

A different gauge will affect finished measurements and yardage requirements.

Suggested needles: 2.75mm (US 2), or size needed to obtain above listed gauge; AND 2.5mm (US 1.5), or one size smaller than size needed to obtain gauge, in preferred style for working in the round.


Fingering weight yarn: 155–260y / 145–240m (45–75g) depending on size and style knit.
