Get ready for a jolly snow day with this hat in sumptuous Kettle Yarn Co. Northiam DK. With a lavish double brim, a simple textured pattern creates undulating rows of warmth to the crown.

Naima includes two versions - a slouchy hat and a beanie. Choose to knit in either one strand of Northiam DK or add a strand of Hythe kid silk for an Aran hat with extra warmth and luxury. Choose the style that suits you best, or knit both for variety!

Beanie - 25 cms (10 inches) tall from brim to crown

TIP: Everyone’s knitting style is different, so it is essential to gauge swatch for each project. 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.
