Wakefield Hat Pattern

Regular price $ 3.00

The Wakefield hat

Unisex and timeless in design, the Wakefield is a simple knit with an intriguing traveling rib stitch pattern. Warm and cozy, with a bit of a slouchy style, this hat is knitted in the round. It is a written pattern with abbreviations. 

Two video links are included. One for the 3 needle bind off  and one for the optional pompoms.

Options:
The pattern can easily adapted to be even more slouchy by adding another repeat (or two) of the stitch pattern.
You may add pompoms for a fun touch (how to video link included).
Two finishing options available, and you can choose from sizes S/M/L. The small size would be great for a teenager.

This project is suitable for the beginner knitter.

Yarn:
Softness, a worsted weight yarn in a soft blend of merino and an antibacterial Dralon by www.yarnz2GO.com, one skein in the color Steel, or 150 yards of a soft worsted weight yarn for sizes S and M regular length.
NOTE: The L size or adding more ridges to make a more slouchy hat will require more yardage.

Alternatively you can use a kid seta yarn and a sport weight smooth yarn held together.
