Slip on this jaunty, fisherman-style beanie as you head out for a cliffside ramble in the wind. Halyard’s thick, folded brim will keep the wind out of your ears and your head warm this winter.

Worked in simple rib stitch, this quick project is perfect when you need a warm hat for a blustery shift of weather, or as a fast knit for a last minute gift.

To fit head
53 - 55 cm (21 - 23”)

23 sts x 37 rows = 10 cm (4”) in Rib Stitch after blocking.

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

TIP: Everyone’s knitting style is different, giving a unique gauge on the same size needle. Always adjust suggested needle size shown in pattern for your personal knitting style to get correct gauge so hat will fit and you don’t run out
of yarn.

Please don’t be tempted to skip this step! The 20 mins it takes will save you time and frustration in the long run, as you’ll have a hat that fits properly in the end.
