A STUDY IN DECADENCE

The classic lines of simple ribbing. Modern, oversized proportions. Heavenly natural yarns. The Harbour Hat is a study in decadence from cast-on to bind-off. Roll up the brim once for a cozy, slouchy fit. Or roll it up twice for a closer, snugglier winter hat experience. This quick and versatile hat is a delight to knit, to wear, and to give—if you can bear to part with it!


Finished Measurements

8” (20 cm) wide = approx. 16” (40 cm) circumference (un-stretched).
Fits approx. 22-23” (56-58 cm) head circumference; average adult.

With brim unfolded: 15” (38 cm) long. With brim folded back once: 3.75” (9.5 cm) brim / total hat length = 10.75” (27 cm). With brim folded back twice: 3.5” (9 cm) brim / total hat length = 8.5” (21.5 cm).

Main Colour: Katia Concept Cotton Merino (70% Cotton, 30% Merino Wool; 115 yards / 105 meters // 50 grams); 2 balls in desired colour.

Complimentary Colour: Sugarbush Yarns Drizzle (76% Mohair, 24% Silk; 219 yards / 200 meters // 25 grams): 1 ball in desired colour.

Turning over a new leaf—starting in September 2019, cold comfort patterns will be formatted with printing/tree-saving in mind. Photos will be limited within the main pattern (still available on Ravelry and Instagram, though) with a more printer friendly paper-saving layout. Enjoy!
