This warm hat features a delightful herringbone rib, perfect for keeping cozy those cold Alberta nights. This worsted weight hat provides a warm barrier against the cold.
Worked in the round, Blue Moon contains written directions and charts. This hat pattern features 3 sizes; Small, Medium, & Large. Blue Moon includes a hat worksheet, so you know how to measure your head to achieve a perfect fit.
Blue Moon 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 throughout instead.
Curt is seen here wearing the medium size and has a 22” (56 cm) circumference head.
