All the hats are constructed by knitting a flat strip on two needles, back and forth, slightly longer than the circumference of the wearer’s head, then joined. The crown is made by picking up stitches around the top edge of the brim tube, then knitted in the round, decreasing to form a flat “tam-like” top.

The Seaman’s Scarf is designed to fit closely and high over the back of the neck while spreading out flat across the chest under a coat. The neck is ribbed and the sides are wide to lay flat providing warmth and beauty. The provisionally cast on edge is at the left edge of the neck ribbing. The left side is worked, then the cast on edge is picked up again and the neck and right side of the scarf is knit. Alternate instructions are included for modern scarves which are longer, without ribbing and worn outside a coat. The modern scarf is knit from one end to the other end.
