The humble sheaf of wheat is a symbol of comfort and home for many, whether due to personal memories of Big Sky Country or simply enjoying baking bread in one’s own kitchen. This stranded wheat motif is suitable for any gender and is graded for many sizes.

This hat is worked from brim to crown, with the 16-stitch repeat worked over the widest part of the hat. No decreases are required in the colorwork section. The ribbed brim begins with a reduced number of stitches for a comfortably snug fit.

Sample is 20.75” size

Colorwork pattern is charted only.
