KOLSCH HAT | .pdf knitting pattern
This striking beanie features a beautiful all-over pattern with cabled and travelling stitches. It’s a perfect project if you’re looking to challenge yourself with a highly-textured design that’s still enjoyable to knit! Kolsch uses a delightfully springy, fingering-weight wool. This makes a lightweight hat that’s ideal for transitional weather. Kolsch has a slouchy fit, and the tiny pompom adds a little pop at the top!
