The Glen Abbey Hat is a knitted representation of the cold comfort knits design philosophy: gorgeous natural yarns + clean lines and patterns = modern, wearable hand-knits. But being wearable isn’t enough—as knitters, we also want our projects to be enjoyable. The Glen Abbey Hat won’t disappoint. Not only is the yarn is a delight to work with, but the pattern can be quickly and easily committed to memory, for an engaging, yet relaxing, knitting experience.

Approximately 160 yds / 145 m of a light-DK pure alpaca, or alpaca-blend, yarn.
Shown in Cascade Yarns Eco Alpaca (100% Natural Un-dyed Alpaca; 218 yds / 200 m / 100 g).

Size US 5 (3.75 mm) 16” / 40 cm circular needle (ribbing, body).
Size US 5 (3.75 mm) double-pointed needles x4 (crown).

28 stitches & 32 rounds = 4” (10 cm) in 1 x 1 Ribbing.

The stitch & round multiples on which The Glen Abbey Hat 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!
