The names chosen for these appealing hats are famous castles. All the hats are constructed by knitting a flat strip on two needles, back and forth, slightly longer than the circumference of the wearer’s head, then joined. The crown is made by picking up stitches around the top edge of the brim tube, then knitted in the round, decreasing to form a flat “tam-like” top.

This pattern is available via Ravelry as part of an ebook. The entire collection originally included in A Collection of Small Knitting Projects Inspired by Historical Stitches from Britain, Ireland, and Scotland, is available as a digital download via my Etsy shop, martaschmarta. The 80 page book includes all the patterns in the Ravelry e-books and extra content.

These patterns are for the intermediate knitter.
