Rokeby Hat

On Sale
Added to cart
This hat is designed to go with our Rokeby fingerless mitts and Rokeby Cowl patterns, using the same houndstooth motif that features in the mitts/gloves/cowl. It is relatively easy colourwork again, and of course there is a lot of scope for playing with colours in this project.

Eden Cottage Yarns, Milburn 4ply
(85% Bluefaced Leicester, 15% silk, 200m/218yds per 50g ball)
Compost; 1 x 50g ball
Thyme; 1 x 50g ball

One 2.75mm (or the size needed to obtain the correct gauge) 40cm / 16in circular needle for the ribbing
One 3mm (or the size needed to obtain the correct gauge) 40cm / 16in circular needle for the colourwork
Stitch marker

29 sts and 36.5 rows to 10cm / 4 in colourwork pattern in the round on 3mm needles after blocking.

The gauge will change after blocking; and the colourwork measured for this gauge is quite stretchy. If you cannot get enough stretch after blocking, it might be worth going up a needle size or two.

We also recommend using a needle size smaller than the body for the ribbing, in order to give it a more fitted feel.

Size given is to fit head circumference of approximately 49cm / 19.25 in stretching to at least 62cm / 24.5 in

Finished circumference: 49cm / 19.25 in
Finished height: 20.5cm / 8 in

The hat shown is as above and fits my 62cm head nicely; not too tight or loose.

Pattern notes
This pattern is written for one size as the fabric is quite stretchy, however if you would like to make a bigger/smaller/longer hat you will need to work in multiples of four for both the stitch count and row count.
