Added to cart
The Westfjords of Iceland are a rugged and stunning region of the country. They are full of unique geologic landscapes and wildlife. Less traveled and icy, the perfect journey for you and your new Westfjords hat!

This is a pattern for a slightly slouchy beanie type hat. It is worked in the round and using the stranded colourwork technique.
This hat is the perfect match for your Westfjords jumper.

Stitches are cast on to work the rib, before working the colourwork chart.

You may add a pom pom, if you like!
