THE CHANDLER HAT
Seriously. Could this hat BE any cooler? Like the Friend that inspired it, Chandler is smart, casual…and a little scared of commitment! Turn up the brim, and it’s a close-fitting beanie. Turn down the brim and it’s a slouchy hat. Use one colour, or knit the brim with a contrast colour. Add a pom. Don’t add a pom. No matter what kind of hat you want to knit, Chandler’s got you covered!

FIND YOUR PERFECT FIT
The stitch & round multiples on which CHANDLER is based are now included in the pattern. For less experienced knitters who want to make a different size, the math is now provided. More experienced knitters can use this same information to make decisions about yarn substitution, gauge etc. I hope this helps empower you to understand your knitting better and to find your perfect fit!
