Pattern Details

This hat is inspired by a recent retreat I attended in Juneau, Alaska. At the Seaside Yarns Mermaid Retreat, I taught techniques from Lithuanian knitting and Japanese knitting books, and both are included in this pattern with links to YouTube videos. This is a quick knit in worsted-weight making it perfect for a quick gift or a weekend project to entertain yourself and learn a couple of new techniques. Two Colors and styles Finished measurements: Approx 19 (21)" / 48 (53) cm, unstretched Gauge: 19 sts and 38 rows = 4" (10cm) over Japanese Hairpin Stitch
