Pattern Details

Stranded colorwork leaf and vine motifs twine luxuriously around the brim of this cap or headband in two sizes (S/L) to knit in the round. Worked in soft, lofty DK weight yarn, the brim provides a dense, cushy windbreaker on the coldest winter days. The top part of the hat is knit in a softer, single weight fabric that slouches pleasingly in any arrangement of bands or stripes. Top with a pom pom made from leftovers for a fun final touch. Substituting yarn and/or needles may result in an overall variation in size and drape. Finished Size: 17.5(21) inches brim circumference to fit heads measuring up to 20(23) inches around Depth of headband = 4(5.5) inches / Depth of cap = 9.5(11) inches Note: size may be further refined by using needles one size larger or smaller Gauge: 21 sts and 32 rows = 4 inches in stockinette on middle needles in Stone Soup DK (unblocked) Note: gauge will be tighter in colorwork pattern

I am the owner of Knitspot - knitting patterns, clubs, and artisan yarns. I am a life-long knitter with a background in the fashion and graphic design fields, and began designing clothing, knitwear and accessories during the 1970s. I teach and write about knitting, spinning, and designing at my blog, Knitspot. I live and work in Ohio with David, who loves wool, too. My design work/profile has been included in Knitty, The Knitter, Interweave Knits, and Twist Collective, Sock Club, Brave New Knits, as well as several upcoming publications. The complete catalog of Knitspot patterns is available for browsing and purchasing at Knitspot yarn clubs are reknowned for perfect pairings of luxury yarn and design, as well as the rollicking good fun in our Ravelry clubhouse where members meet, chat, and knit through club projects together. Our Bare Naked yarns are as close to the farm as a knitter can get, using fresh fiber produce from regional growers which is then spun into yarn at smaller artisan mills with which I have worked over the years. The collection is focused on single-breed pure wool yarns and exotic blends, with colors that range an entire array of natural tones—yarn the way nature made it.
