Pay What Works: Inspired by the models of other designers that I trust and respect, I’m now offering a “Pay What Works” model. I like this model because it accurately reflects the pride that I take in all of my designs and the effort that I put into them, while staying true to my heart: that knitting should be accessible to everyone, no matter what their current life situation.

I’m offering coupon codes to let you “choose your price” for this pattern. Each of these codes will adjust the cost of the pattern to the final cost listed below (the cost listed is what you pay, not the discount amount).

This hat and it’s “twin” hat, Cesario, are knit in the round starting with the ribbing and moves fluidly up through the cables. It is extra long to allow the wearer to style it as a slouchy hat, or fold the brim up for extra thickness over the ears and have it fitted like a beanie.

17” (20.5”, 22.5”) (43cm (52cm, 57cm)) head circumference.
Final Dimensions
10” (10.25”, 10.5”) (25.5cm (26cm, 26.5cm)) tall, 15.5” (18”, 20.5”) (39.5cm (45.5cm, 52cm)) circumference.

Note about sizing: Please keep the Final Dimensions in mind. Negative ease is already included in the sizing. This makes it more ideal for wearing it with the brim folded up and beanie style, but wearer can still style it slouchy by pulling down on the back of the hat. If the wearer prefers a more slouchy style hat, it is suggested that the next size up should be made. :o)

The gauge swatch is knit flat in stockinette st, and left unblocked to make the gauge easier to read.

150 (185, 210 yds) (138 (170, 192 m)) of a worsted weight yarn is needed. The sample was knit using Malabrigo Rios. The sample is a size small on a small sized head.

US7 (4.5mm) - 16” circular
