The magnificence of the Oregon coast and the small port town of Harbor inspired me to create a collection of accessories worked in a simple knit and purl herringbone texture. My favorite go-to worsted weight wool, Cascade Yarns 220® shows off the swirling stitch pattern beautifully in this easy hat project.

Size: Adult medium
Finished Measurements:  18" circumference (unstretched); 7 ½ " height (measured from cast on edge to beginning of crown)
Gauge:  20 sts and 24 rows = 4"/10cm in pattern stitch. Take time to check gauge.
