Wild Sage Hat
DESCRIPTIONWild Sage Hat is the final installment in a set of three matching accessories. Designed to complement the fingerless mitts and socks in the set, the hat features alternating sections of lace and garter stitch. The pattern also includes instructions for making a full-lace version of the hat. The cushy garter-stitch brim will keep your ears cozy and warm. Worked in a sport-weight yarn in two colors, this hat is a quick and engaging knit.
The hat is available in two sizes: Small (55 cm / 21¾“) and Large (60 cm / 23¾”). A photo tutorial for making a fluffy pom pom that finishes the look is included in the pattern.
The hat is knitted bottom up from the brim to the crown using a short circular needle. The pattern is written with both metric and US terminology. Both written and charted instructions are given for the lace pattern.
