Bellamy has a subtle diamond motif made up of simple purl stitches. This hat would be ideal for new knitters who are looking to develop new skills and step beyond a basic beanie.
Worked in the round, Bellamy contains written directions and charts. This hat pattern features 3 sizes; Small, Medium, & Large. Bellamy includes a hat worksheet, so you know how to measure your head to achieve a perfect fit.
Bellamy is written to be worked on circular needles. When the crown becomes too small to continue, you’ll switch to the magic loop method. However, the pattern notes do contain details should you wish to use double pointed needles instead.
Curt is seen here wearing the medium size and has a 22” (56 cm) circumference head.
