Weather the seasons in comfort with this watchcap beanie that will cocoon you season after season. Combining Baskerville’s delicate crimp with Islington’s sleek shimmer, this timeless design features a solid slip-stitch stripe which punctuates the crown like a ray of sunshine through billowing clouds of textured rib. With a richly doubled brim of warmest small batch British Gotland/BFL, your ears will thank you in the wind.

Length from crown 21.6cm (8.5”) with folded brim.

26 sts x 38 rows = 10cm (4”) in Garter Rib Stitch after blocking.

suggested needle size
3 mm (US #-) 16” | 40 cm and 3.5 mm (US #4) 16” | 40 cm circular needle for magic loop method (or DPNs, as preferred).

NEEDLE TIP: Use larger or smaller needles if necessary to obtain correct tension. Everyone’s knitting style is different, so it is essential to gauge swatch for each project in new yarn. *

Always adjust suggested needle size shown in pattern for your knitting style to get correct gauge so hat will fit and you don’t run out of yarn. Don’t skip this step - it will save you time and frustration in the long run! (See pattern resources for tutorial on correct method for gauge swatches.)
