The Wreckhouse hat is the second pattern in the Wreckhouse Collection.

The patterns can be purchased separately, or as a collection for 25% off. Past purchases count, meaning if you’ve previously purchased one or more of the patterns in the collection, you can add the other(s) to your cart and receive the collection at the discounted price minus what you’ve already paid!

For example, if you already bought the hat pattern for $7, add the collection to your cart. The collection price of $21 will be discounted by the $7 you paid for the hat, and you’ll get cowl, headband, and mitten patterns for $14 total.


Wreckhouse is an area of Newfoundland named for its extreme winds. While the Newfoundland Railway was still in operation, the winds would occasionally blow railway cars off the tracks, and to this day transport trucks are still blown off the road from time to time.

The Wreckhouse hat is knit in thick, dense, Honeycomb Brioche Stitch, making it a stylish but also truly functional winter accessory. The honeycomb pockets trap warm air, making this hat an effective barrier against the briskest of winter winds.
