  • This is a PDF knitting pattern.

    This DK weight hat is quick and fun to knit with the slip stitch brick pattern. Choose one main color and accent it with as many contrast colors as you like. This hat is knit in the round from the brim toward the crown with a cozy folded brim. A squishy DK weight wool like West Wool Tandem will make the coziest colourful accessory.

  • Finished Measurements
    17” / 43cm circumference.
    Shown on a 21.5” / 55cm head circumference.

    The hat comfortably stretches to fit up to a 23” / 58cm head circumference. For a more relaxed fit on a larger head size, I recommend aiming for a gauge of 20 – 22 sts = 4” / 10cm in Brick pattern.
