Wingate is a richly textured hat with styling options for everyone. Choose from a single or double brim and beanie style or taller classic toque. Wingate is knit with worsted weight yarn and available in three adult sizes.

I knit two Wingate hats, both with Brooklyn Tweed Ranch 02: Forbes. This Rambouillet yarn is plump and round, perfect for cables and making twisted stitches “pop”.

Note: The finished circumference of your hat will be smaller than this gauge. The cables will pull in on the fabric, but will still allow for plenty of stretch.
