Westknits Kits are available at Stephen & Penelope!

  • This is a PDF knitting pattern.

    Gather four colors of DK weight yarn to knit this brimmed hat. Begin with a folded brim in 2x2 ribbing and then continue into the main striped pattern. The body of the hat is worked with a fun dip stitch technique that creates clusters of long stitches. The instructions include a video link demonstrating this technique. You only work with one color at a time, making this project perfect for single skeins and leftover bits of DK weight wool. Pop a pom pom on top and keep cozy with this warm winter hat!
