Seabed - the ground under the sea - the ocean floor.

Seabed is included in my little ebook Fathom along with it’s sister lace hat pattern Knot.

Seabed is a all-over lace hat with a beachy feel. Worked in leafy/shell-style from the ribbing up to the crown of the hat. The instructions are given in both fully written and fully charted formats.

If you are a lover of lace hats! You can get both my lace hat eBooks for $15. Just put both Stone & Sea and Fathom in your cart and the discount will be automagically applied! If you’ve previously bought Stone & Sea you’ll magically get Fathom for just $5!


1 skein of Woolfolk TYND in colourway “No 2” and 1 skein of Woolfolk SNO in colourway “No 1 & 2,” held double. Or two skeins of 223 yards (204 metres) of fingering weight yarn, held double.


3.5mm (US 4) knitting needles (or whatever size it takes you to get gauge) in whatever style needles you like to use for knitting a hat in the round (DPNs, Magic Loop, 16” circular needles, etc…). I used 16” circular needles until I needed to work The Decrease Chart and then I switched over to DPNs.
