When I was little, my father used to take me to McDonalds for lunch—my usual was a Happy Meal with animal crackers for ‘dessert’. Later, we would walk to the lighthouse, where I would gleefully share my desert with the ducks. To this day, that lighthouse holds some of my sweetest memories. The Lighthouse Hat is a product of those memories. Soft, warm, and beautiful in its simplicity, this delightful hat is a joy to knit, and to wear. I hope it brings you abundant warmth and pleasure :)

The stitch & round multiples on which The Lighthouse 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!
